What is Cloud Hosting?

What is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting services provide hosting on virtual servers which pull their computing resource from extensive underlying networks of physical web servers.

Generally, clients can tap into their service as much as they need to, depending on their requirements at any stage. This can result in cost savings as they only have to pay for what they use, and because they can access it at any time, they don’t need to pay for additional capacity.

How it Works

Public Cloud

  • Most examples of cloud hosting involve the use of public cloud models; hosting on virtual servers that pull resource from a pool of other publicly available virtual servers
  • The same public networks are used to transmit their data; data which is physically stored on the underlying shared servers which form the cloud resource
  • These public clouds will include some security measure to ensure that data is kept private, and would suffice for most installations

Private Cloud

  • Private clouds are more suitable where security and privacy is more of a concern
  • Private clouds use ring-fenced resources, such as servers and networks, whether located on site or with the cloud provider
