Cloud hosting is a web hosting service that utilizes a network of servers in a remote location, typically referred to as “the cloud,” to store and manage website data. Instead of storing website data on a single, dedicated server, cloud hosting stores data on multiple servers that are connected through a network.
Cloud hosting allows for greater flexibility, scalability, and reliability, as website data can be easily distributed across multiple servers to handle increased traffic and ensure that the website remains online even if one server goes down.
In cloud hosting, resources such as CPU, RAM, and storage are shared among multiple customers, and customers can access and configure their resources as needed. Cloud hosting allows customers to pay for only the resources they need and to scale up or down as their needs change easily.
Cloud hosting also allows for easy backups and disaster recovery, as all data is stored on multiple servers.
Cloud hosting services are provided by companies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform and can be purchased on a pay-as-you-go basis.
