Cloud hosting also known as hosting in the cloud is the web hosting services delivered as a service rather than a product over the Internet and allows users to fully focus on their websites, eCommerce, products, profits, etc instead of hardware and the huge cost commonly incurred in upgrading. In the concept of cloud, all terminals are established to work together in one single environment resembling a cloud metaphorically, so that the application can make use of all the computing capability it has and distribute the cloud resources flexibly to different terminals whenever the needs arise.
According to Mr. Chan, the advantages of cloud hosting over conventional shared hosting / dedicated servers can be summarized as the following:
· website / computing power scalability
Website or server power is on demand, i.e. website or server power increases instantly during web traffic peak and decreases instantly during web traffic off peak which in turn provides web visitors with optimum website loading speed and best website experience
· cost saving due pay as you use
Website owners save costs during web traffic off peak due to the fact that they are only billed on how much they use and not how long they use, applying a billing concept similar to an electric meter.
· cost saving due to hardware elimination
Adopting cloud does not require one to purchase any hardware due to the fact that all webfiles, applications, data, etc. will be hosted on a virtual machine instead of a physical server.
· easy implementation
Cloud hosting is very easy to implement as website owners no longer need to purchase any software licenses or hardware. Setups are all automated.
· more internal IT resources
By employing cloud hosting, website owners can shift the workload of in-house IT team to the hosting provider and focus on profits and e-Commerce-related tasks.
· 24×7 reliable technical support
The virtual machines are usually supported by professional IT experts who work 24×7 to eliminate all users’ technical concerns.
· high availability and fast website recovery
If server hardware fails, it will be automatically and instantly moved to other servers within the cloud. The website recovers only in a few minutes.
The Applications of Cloud Hosting
The applications and adoption of cloud hosting are vast. It includes social media sites, web applications, Facebook applications and business applications. Cloud hosting greatly improves the overall visitor website experience in this environment since problem such as website downtime and the like are largely eliminated.
Social Media Sites
Owners of social media sites on which members extensively share photos, videos and music relies on the technology of cloud that allows smooth surfing during traffic surge in peak hours and cost saving during off peak.
Cloud hosting helps e-Commerce sites that run multiple web applications such as order status check, file sharing, data storing simultaneously in improving website loading speed without extensive investment on hardware.
Program / game developers of Facebook who host their applications / games on cloud are assured of websites that run at optimum speed even if visitors access / browse them from a remote location.
