Cloud hosting may be the newest and one of the best web hosting methods of our time. However as anything else it has its flaws and merits as well. What makes cloud hosting stand out from other web hosting methods also happens to be its biggest advantage. It  makes it possible to charge the user on a consumption basis. This way you only get to pay for what you use, in terms of space, memory and bandwidth.

There is also conservation of energy and resources in that the system is programmed to consume only the resources it needs. E.g. Unused hard disk space or memory can be saved and used for other purposes. This also means that website owners can utilize the space saved to increase their database or enhance website performance.

Cloud hosting does not have a limit as to the number of websites that it can host. This therefore makes it ideal for websites belonging to big organizations which may require lots of space to accommodate their large database and also emails accounts for users. This would be hard for other methods as they may not be able to accommodate all the needs of a big website such as a government department website and still keep the costs low.

Security is always an area of concern as far as information technology is concerned. The internet involves sharing of information in various forms such as audio, video images and text. This information may be private in some cases hence it needs to be protected. A cloud hosting shortcoming is that its servers can be accessed by a larger number of people as long as they have privileges. You therefore have less power to control who gets access to your information. Website owners should therefore establish the administrators who will have access to their information and have proper guidelines as far as privacy is concerned. This is advisable so as to have someone answerable incase of a breech in security.

While cloud hosting is composed of virtual servers they have to be created from a physical server. The server that hosts your site can be controlled from anywhere. However it may be an issue as the distance from the server to the targeted browsers should be within proximity to the browsers. This is because distance is bound to affect the connection speed. This can be a drawback to the website as site speed is a factor considered by Google in assigning website ranks. Having virtual servers in different places is also complex due to the difference in time zones which may hamper communication.
