Cloud hosting for businesses

Posted on October 31, 2020 at 1:13 pm

In order to have a website it is necessary to have a hosting account. This could be a single dedicated server or more commonly one that is shared with other website accounts. Cloud hosting on the other hand is when data is spread across a number of different servers in different places which are all connected together. There is a virtual server that accesses this data, but it only exists in the virtual environment or cloud as it is known. So, what are the advantages of using this type of hosting for a website?

One of the chief benefits seen by businesses is the improved security that cloud hosting provides. It is far easier to protect a cloud network from cyber threats as the data is held in a central location rather than a dedicated server. Another benefit is that the data can easily be recovered should there be a failure in any devices accessing the cloud.

The flexibility of cloud hosting is seen as a definite advantage to a new business. As the business grows and possibly increases the number of employees, the demand for capacity rises so cloud hosting allows for the business needs fluctuating over time without additional costs to the business.
