What is Cloud Hosting?

The hosting provided on virtual servers that drag their computing resource from a cluster of servers connected together is called as cloud hosting.

In cloud hosting, clients can access their service as much as they want to, at any stage depending on their requirements. Clients can save costs as they need to pay only for what is used and since the service is accessible at any time, they don’t need to pay for additional capacity.

How it Works?

There are several examples of cloud hosting that specify the use of public cloud models. Public cloud hosting involves hosting on virtual servers that draw resource from a pool of other virtual servers available publicly.

The data that is physically stored on the interconnected servers, which form the cloud resource, is transmitted via the same public networks.

These public clouds offer security measures which ensure that the data is secure and would be sufficient for more installations.

Private clouds are specially designed for those who require additional security as well as privacy.

It uses resources such as servers and networks that are limited to a single client whether located on site or with the cloud provider.

Hybrid cloud is the combination of public and private cloud and helps in sharing of data and applications between the public and private cloud.

It offers greater flexibility and more data deployment options along with lowering the risk of data exposure.

Comparison with hosting on single servers

An alternative to hosting websites on single servers (either dedicated or shared servers), cloud hosting can be considered as the extension of clustered hosting wherein websites are hosted on multiple servers. The network of servers used in cloud hosting is infinite that are connected to act as one.

Here are different types of cloud service models:

Types of Cloud Service Models:

In PaaS, a software environment is offered to the clients, enabling them to directly install and develop their applications.

It is easy in terms of usage as compared to the IaaS option.

It is mainly suitable for those who have less technical knowledge.

The clients only get the virtualized hardware resource which allows them to install their choice of software environment prior to building their own web application.

Highly customizable and so, is best for businesses that have complex IT infrastructure.

Mainly suitable for IT expertise individuals.

It allows clients to deploy the software over the internet to different businesses.

Mostly important for CRM and applications that have high web or mobile access.

The service maintenance is done by the service provider, letting you to think only about using the particular piece of software.


Mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) or backend as a service (BaaS) is a turn-on infrastructure for web and mobile apps.

It makes easy for developers to setup, use and operate a cloud backend for their web, mobile and tablet apps. This gives developers more time to concentrate on truly differentiating experiences.

The service provider takes care of all the essential technical infrastructure requirements behind the scenes for proper working of the app.


The concept of serverless computing using serverless architecture is called as Function-as-a-Service (FaaS).

It helps the developers to perform a code for responding to events without the need to build out or maintain a complex infrastructure.

FaaS offers a highly agile software development which means more releases and leading to innovation.

Build and Scale With These Features

Suits All Businesses
Scale any application in real time with the public cloud platform. Businesses can ensure the best performance with features likes automatic horizontal/vertical scaling, server load balancer, container service, DevOps automation and marketplace.
Cheap cloud hosting offers hosting on a virtual partition that pulls its resources such as disk space from multiple physical servers, networked to act as one. This means, if one server fails or goes offline, the virtual servers will continue pulling resources from the other network of servers helping the website to remain available always.
Physical Security
The virtual physical servers are located within data centers and so, get guaranteed security implemented by the data centers for preventing access or disruption to them by people on-site. Automated backups and snapshots offered by the cloud ensure that your data remains safe.
On demand resource is available in real time and there’s no limit to the physical constraints/capacity of one server. For example, if a client’s website requires extra resources from the hosting platform due to sudden rise in traffic or for implementing new function, the resource can be accessed without any restriction. Additionally, the auto-vertical and auto-horizontal scaling without manual intervention helps in meeting the demands of the applications without wastage of money and resources.
Utility Style Costing
The client needs to pay for only what is used. Though the resources are available on demand during spikes, there isn’t any wastage of capacity as it remains unused when the demand lowers. The calculation of hosting cost is based on the real usage so customers get complete control over the cloud environment as well as they can decide their budget themselves.
Responsive Load Balancing
Being software based, load balancing can instantly scale in response to the changing demands. Speeding up the processing of requests, minimizing the page load latency and handling more simultaneous request without failures is possible by setting up intelligent workload balancer between the server nodes.
Freedom of Customization
With complete control on the cloud environment, it is possible to customize the cloud as required. Simply define the attributes like operating system, processing power, resource consumption, etc. and scale the cloud server.
Easy App Deployment
There are over 100 popular applications like content management systems, wikis, developer tools, forums, portals and much more present in the marketplace. Customers can select their desired app from the marketplace and start using it within few minutes of its deployment.
