    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 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.

    Draw back of Cloud Hosting

    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. 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.
