Shared hosting vs cloud hosting features


Shared hosting may guarantee 99.99% uptimes, however, it is challenging to live up to that. One major reason for this is the shared nature of the services. If one website experiences unprecedented high traffic could cause downtime issues with all the websites on that server.

Cloud hosting, on the other hand, has impeccable uptimes since the users are on a dedicated server. Even though there is an aspect of shared resources, problems on one server only mean websites are moved to another functioning server.


Cloud hosting has an upper hand in this regard. Even the advanced users as well (those on the cloud) tend to have more features. They have unlimited everything, from storage to bandwidth and databases.
Shared hosting is prone to more limits than the web host cares to divulge. Although the plan promises unlimited resources if the monitoring team notices a user overusing the limited resources repercussions like suspensions can occur.


In this instance, shared hosting is the clear winner. Since every web hosting company is trying to attract the huge client base of shared hosting, free bonuses abound for all. This can range from domain names to free web transfers and website builders. This is a plus for users on shared hosting.

Cloud users are not prone to such offers or have very limited options.

Cloud hosting provides service that exists on multiple servers. In place of on one Shared server, your site is hosted in the Cloud on market. Thank you.

Shared Hosting

It is today the most economical hosting solution and is suitable for blogging or corporate websites with moderate traffic (mostly showcases). In fact, several websites share a single server and the same resources (bandwidth, disk space, and memory allocation). This solution is convenient for individuals who do not master the technique because the host provides you with a complete administration system and takes care of all the features related to the hosting system (update, security, maintenance, backups, software installation, etc.).

If a company needs specific modules, special languages, or a different MySQL database, then shared hosting is not the best solution.

Benefits of Shared Hosting

- Pricing structure: The main advantage of shared hosting is its price. As you can imagine, you will benefit from much more attractive offers if you opt for this solution.
- Ease of use: When launching your site, we are looking for a simple and effective solution that adapts to our needs. This is a big advantage of shared hosting. Indeed, the choices you will have to make will be much more limited, because the proposed offer is often well defined.
- Services and performance: Everything depends on your website: if you can afford to know slowdowns in exceptional cases, you can easily opt for a shared server.

Cloud Hosting

The cloud server fairly close to the VPS hosting. The difference is that the VPS relies on a physical server whereas the cloud is based on several servers and the virtual resources are shared between several server computers that work together to create a large virtual network (cloud). The cloud is suitable for all needs.

Where the VPS has limitations on the amount of bandwidth and data transfer it can provide, cloud hosting can tap into the same resources over and over again. The VPS is a bit like trying to run your laptop on battery; it will eventually run out and your computer will shut down. If you plug it into the wall, you can use your laptop indefinitely on a rotating power supply (cloud). This type of hosting is suitable for most businesses.

Benefits of Cloud Hosting

- On-demand resources: With cloud servers, you’re free to request resources on the fly and, in general, pay on time.
- High availability: Unlike on-premises physical servers, virtual machines transfer data to another machine without downtime in the event of a hardware failure. The stability of cloud servers is unmatched in the field of web hosting.
- Scalability: With more resources and faster access to them, cloud hosts offer incredible scalability for customers. This is why these types of servers are used for other cloud-based services, collectively known as cloud hosting.

Cloud is certainly the future and gaining popularity. However shared hosting is also keeping its place in some areas.
If you need to host multiple sites in a cost efficient manner, shared hosting is the way to go.
Shared hosting provide panels which makes user just to upload files and make it online.
It also provide a very good one to one technical support from the hosting companies. If you need to launch large web application or microservice based applications certainly cloud hosting is the way to go.

The difference between shared and cloud hosting lies in how each is organized. Shared hosting servers are servers with multiple websites on them. Cloud hosting is a service that exists on multiple servers. Instead of on one shared server, your site is hosted in the cloud.
