Up In The Cloud

“What is cloud hosting?” is probably the question we get the most here at HostHero, so let’s answer it!

First off, lets look at web hosting in general. Web hosting is an internet service that allows people to make their own websites accessible to everyone, via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server (which they either lease or own) to their clients, while providing internet connectivity through their data centers. When a specific code is requested online, the server will then forward the data to the world wide web, and presto! A live website is born.

Cloud hosting is taking the same process, but applying the theory and fidelity of clustered computing: it provides servers with more flexibility and elasticity, constantly evolving with the fluctuations in traffic.  A rapid influx of users to a site previously had tendencies to crowd the server, exhausting all resources and inevitably reaching the point where a website crashes. With cloud hosting though, clients have the ability to take advantage of virtually connected servers that automatically pool resources.

A great example of how cloud hosting works would be, say, if your site was to get picked up by an aggregation-based site like Digg.com. With regular shared hosting, as traffic peaks as a result of the sudden insurgence of users your site would be overloaded and most likely crash. Such is not the case with cloud hosting. Using carefully tuned load-balancing instruments, a cloud hosting infrastructure will have processes in place to carefully adjust the weight on whichever server is affected. This will practically guarantee your site will never go down, since it can pool resources when needed, and distribute accordingly.

Here at HostHero, we also use a CDN or Content Delivery Network (a network that delivers content based on where you are). For example, if you are a client in say, Tampa Bay, Florida, and a user from Singapore is on your site, our CDN will engage and deliver data from the closest point of access. So instead of being routed through a server in Dallas, data will be routed from a much closer server to the user, in Sinagpore. This is just one example of how our CDN works in symphony with our cloud infrastructure.

Cloud hosting gives clients and users all the benefits of a private server, at shared hosting rates – with full redundancy, constant back-ups, and an environment designed to support rapid fluctuations of traffic, cloud hosting boasts features and rates that traditional shared hosting simply can not match.
