You may have heard the term “Cloud Hosting” but you may not know the meaning of this term (it does NOT mean hosting your site in the sky between clouds 😀 ). The term Cloud Hosting refers to two different things; one is the services that run on the interned instead of your computer like online file editing that Google Drive and Dropbox. The second is Web site Cloud Hosting which mean hosting your site data on many connected servers that form a cloud. At the end of August 2015 Bluehost announced the start of their Cloud Hosting or what they call Bluehost Cloud Sites, in this article I will talk about the importance of cloud hosting and how to decide if you really need to move your site to Bluehost Cloud Hosting instead of Shared hosting or Managed WordPress Hosting.
Cloud Hosting at Bluehost (Bluehost Cloud Sites)
As I mentioned above cloud hosting technology is hosting your site data on more than one server, this means that your site is no longer hosted on one server like shared hosting which hosts many sites on the same server so if one of these sites is hacked or consuming the server resources all the other servers will be affected unless the company using an account isolation technology.
With Bluehost Cloud Sites service, your site data will be automatically mirrored across three servers so if one of those servers falters or went down your site will be automatically switched to another server so your site will never goes down unless the three servers goes down which is technically impossible.
Bluehost Cloud Sites Features
Security & Stability
A great benefit of Bluehost Cloud Sites hosting is that your site is mirrored across three devices so you don’t have to worry about hardware falters as there will be at least one copy of your site data working which will be automatically served to your site visitors, so technically there will be NO downtime.
Another important feature of Cloud Web Hosting offer is that you add extra resources any time like CPU and RAM so when your site gets more traffic you don’t need to worry about your site being slow or goes down you can simply add extra resources from your hosting panel by few clicks and pay. Another good thing about Bluehost Cloud Hosting is that it gives you the ability to increase your hosting resources temporarily when you need them and you can decrease them again when you don’t need them, unlike Shared Hosting that gives you the ability to add extra resources when you need but you have to still paying for the extra resources even if you don’t need them anymore as you can’t cancel them once you added them.
Beside low-density servers and enhanced hardware, Bluehost cloud hosting platform includes a built-in caching layer and global Content Delivery Network (CDN) which takes your site loading speed to high level.
