Some are concerned about the security of cloud hosting. It is something that providers take seriously though, and the security of cloud hosting is becoming less of a concern. But, when something is stored in the cloud and is, in theory, accessible from anywhere, can there be a guarantee of it being 100% secure? There is a difference of opinion in this area.

The biggest concerns about cloud computing are security and privacy. Users might not be comfortable handing over their data to a third party. This is an even greater concern when it comes to companies that wish to keep their sensitive information on cloud servers. While most service vendors would ensure that their servers are kept free from viral infection and malware, it Is still a concern considering the fact that a number of users from around the world are accessing the server.

While cloud computing and storage is a great innovation in the field of hosting, it doesn’t come without its own faults, even though there aren’t many of them (pretty standard for a relatively new technology).
-Less flexibility
-Stability issues
-Less security
-Higher cost

Cloud web host is the newest form of the web host who has become popular over modern times.When your site is on cloud hosting, then you will be able to have access to multiple servers and not a single one.

I think every system has some pros and cons. And the major concern is security because you connect to the Internet and provide your passwords to connect to your servers or cloud storage. So, I believe if you are able to maintain your computer security, the drawbacks of cloud hosting gets minimized and your ultimate goal is achieved.

As compare to shared/reseller hosting cloud hosting is less expensive. Besides of that I do not see any disadvantage. You can implement most of the security tweaks to make it secure and stable.

5 Disadvantages of Cloud Computing
1. Possible downtime
2. Security issues
3. Cost
4. Inflexibility
5. Lack of support

Downtime should not be a disadvantage and neither inflexibility. Ideally the cloud is supposed to prevent downtime so there should not be any and the cloud is anything but inflexible.

The cloud services are connected to the internet that can be leased as the part of the software or application services and thus can interpret such service. The Cloud Hosting services also refers to several servers that are linked together to share the common load.

Cloud hosting disadvantages


If you and your web host are following best practice, the security risks associated with cloud hosting (https://www.esds.co.in/private-cloud-hosting) are minimal. That said, some organisations feel more secure knowing that all their data is within a metal box that they can put their hands on. A private cloud is usually the sensible compromise in these circumstances.


This is dependent on the type of cloud hosting your choose but certainly for cloud hosting firms that are perhaps resellers or not particularly thorough in their setup, downtime can be an issue.


Since your web hosting infrastructure is in the cloud, your access to your data is dependent on internet access. Generally, internet access is not hard to come by but it still raises the possibility of your ability to maintain your data and website being tied to the reliability of your internet service provider.

What are the pros of cloud computing?
The pros outweighs the cons of cloud computing. The minimized costs, easy access, data backup, data centralization, sharing capabilities, security, free storage and quick testing speaks for itself. The argument becomes even stronger with the enhanced flexibility and dependability.

Cloud hosting has benefited businesses by reducing costs and allowing them to focus more on their business operations rather than IT and infrastructure issues.

Despite this, there are some disadvantages of cloud hosting, but this depends on the hosting provider you select. For example, if your hosting provider is not implementing the best security practices, then your data is always on risk from cyber threats such as Ransomware (https://www.acecloudhosting.com/blog/stay-safe-against-ransomware/). Downtime is another concern which is always a possibility in cloud hosting services.

Always pick a cloud hosting provider that can turn such disadvantages into opportunities.

Hope that helps.

Cloud hosting is a full proof solution for all your hosting needs. But, its major drawback is lack of knowledge. Without the proper knowledge or the expert team like MilesWeb, you canít make the most of your cloud hosting experience.

Cost maybe! Especially on a small scale and for short term projects Ė can be pricey. Though it can allow you to reduce staff and hardware costs, the overall price tag could end up higher than you expected. Until youíre sure of what will work best for you, itís a good idea to experiment with a variety of offerings.
