    Web Hosting Services

    This is the simplest form of hosting your website, where you are usually provided a fixed amount of resources of a server, which is shared with hundreds or thousands of other websites.

    Cloud Hosting

    Different service providers use this term to denote a variety of services.

    One variation of it is where the service provider assigns the customer a purpose built environment, that can be scaled up or down based on your requirement. The demand could be in terms of processing and storage capacity.

    Web hosting is a physical server base while cloud hosting is a virtual server hardware. With web hosting, you rent space on a single physical server to store your website's files from where browsers download your files if a user searches by writing your domain name. But in cloud hosting, all server hardware is virtual and safe from server attacks. Cloud hosting also offers unlimited resources to store. So, if you have a fast-growing website and want to get cost-effective hosting option, then you should consider taking cloud hosting.

    Cloud provides you with more resources, control over your server, security. So if you're going for a serious website, go for cloud.

    "Cloud Computing", by definition, refers to the on-demand delivery of IT resources and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go pricing.

    Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources instead of having local servers or personal devices to handle applications.

    Cloud resources are usually not only shared by multiple users but are also dynamically reallocated per demand. This can work for allocating resources to users.

    Web hosting is the business of providing server space, web services and file maintenance for websites controlled by companies or individuals that do not have their own web servers.

    There are different types of web hosting:

    -Shared Hosting/virtual hosting/mass hosting
    -Dedicated hosting
    -Root server hosting/semi-managed hosting
    -Re-seller hosting

    Conclusion:


    The web hosting gives you a fixed server or a portion of a single server, where cloud computing gives you the benefit of many servers all working together as one. Your particular website or application may only need one small portion of a single server, so there's no need to get a dedicated server. Those servers sit on, consuming power and space even if it isn't needed.

    Web hosting is simply the process of offering remote location and maintenance for files and server space used to support web projects. Cloud computing services that include web hosting are usually multitenant. That means that the files and data resources of multiple clients are housed on the same server.

The definition of cloud computing services involves the connection of clients to vendors through wireless or IP connected networks.

    The difference between shared and cloud hosting is that the servers on a shared hosting plan have multiple websites on them while cloud hosting in comparison allows your site to be hosted on various servers. It means that cloud hosting can adjust to traffic and performance.

    With all of the hosting types available it can be difficult to make the right decision. When you’re trying to decide between cloud vs. web hosting, think about what kind of things you’ll want from your host.

    For example, if you’re a complete beginner who wants their site online as fast as possible, then shared hosting could work for you. But, if you have a very high traffic website and you don’t want to think twice about managing your own server, then consider a managed host.

    But, if you want something more flexible that’s cost-effective and can grow with your site, then cloud hosting is an option worth considering.

    Hopefully, the breakdown above will help you decide if going with traditional web hosting or cloud hosting is going to be the best fit for your website.
