Cloud Hosting is preferred by all the corporate giants, but if you’re new to the hosting, the first question arising in your mind would definitely be “what is cloud hosting”.
Cloud hosting sites operate across various web servers that are interconnected, and as opposed to traditional hosting such as shared hosting, and dedicated hosting, data is rendered from various servers.
Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting that has become extremely popular over the past few years. The main concept of cloud hosting is “Divide and Rule” – the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across more than one web server, and are rendered as per need basis.
This greatly reduces chances of any downtimes in case of a server malfunction.
Another noteworthy aspect is that cloud hosting allows you to manage peak loads easily, without facing any bandwidth issues, since another server can provide the additional resources in such a case.
As your business needs rise and fall irregularly, you have nothing to worry as you can change your hosting plan according to your needs, and pay only for what you use.
Cloud hosting has come a long way, and several large enterprises have been using it for years together, but for the small business owners to be able to look at it, pricing will have to come down further.Having said so, the pricing has considerably come down over last 4-5years, and folks have learned the advantages of cloud hosting, which is compelling the mid-size organizations to make a move to the cloud arena.

Many businesses have made a worthy investment by moving to cloud, while others haven’t yet invested in the infrastructure required to make a transition to cloud. The main reason why cloud computing isn’t as popular as it could have been, is that the cost factor is still a concern for small businesses.But, one can definitely expect to see more and more businesses making a shift to cloud as new low-cost cloud implementations continue to be developed, and I wouldn’t call it exaggeration to say – One day everybody would be in the clouds!”
Cloud Hosting also known as cloud web hosting.
In shared hosting, one’s web site is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds or thousands. Typically, all domains may share a common pool of server resources, such as RAM and the CPU. As cost is extremely low, most websites with moderate traffic levels running standard software are hosted on this type of server. Shared hosting is also widely accepted as the entry level hosting option as it requires minimum technical knowledge.

A virtual private server hosting divides a server into virtual servers, where each websites is like hosted on their own dedicated server, but they’re actually sharing a server with a few different other users. The users may have root access to their own virtual space and better secured hosting environment with this type of hosting. Websites that need greater control at the server level, but don’t want to invest in a dedicated server.

A dedicated server offers the maximum control over the web server your website is stored on – You exclusively rent an entire server. Your website(s) is the only website stored on the server.

Email hosting is a service that runs email servers. Put simply, if you own a domain name and want email service on that domain name, you would need to sign up for an email hosting service.
Most web hosting companies provide you with email hosting as well; however, the email hosting service provided by web hosting companies for the most part only supplies you with POP3 email and the basics in spam/virus protection and other features. Additionally, some of the free email hosting providers are ad-supported. Again, if you own a small or medium sized business (SME), then you should not want to operate your business email using one of these providers since the email service is typically sub-par as compared to a professional email hosting service.
Using a professional email hosting service should give you peace of mind. You should be able to focus on your business while the email hosting provider manages your email service. Most email hosting providers offer a rich set of webmail features including unlimited aliases, unlimited forwarders, autoresponders, large attachments, robust spam/virus protection, mail rules, IMAP/POP3, online storage, calendars, mailing lists, whitelists, blacklists, backups, archiving, folder management, contacts management, etc. You would also be able to access your email from anywhere using webmail, smartphone and your favorite email client such as Outlook.

Best of all, professional email hosting service is very affordable. It eliminates the need for in-house email servers and IT people to manage those email servers.
