When you are running a website, it is but important to get a reliable hosting company which can provide you various services apart from just hosting your site. Since more and more people are lured to operating their own sites whether it be personal blogs or online businesses, more and more companies offering hosting services also emerged like mushrooms. In a way, this can benefit more web masters as there will be more options available and each can choose the best one that could well serve their needs.
Now the challenge lies in choosing whether you will go for a dedicated server or consider using Cloud VPS Hosting. Before you decide, you have to weigh the pros and cons of both. For Cloud VPS Hosting, you just use the resources you need. There will be no downtime, as there is no need to shut down the server whenever there is a need to adjust your resources. With cloud hosting, there is a flexibility of using resources of multiple machines, so if one machine is down, you will have no worries as your website will still be up and running.
These are some of the features that you cannot enjoy using a dedicated server. Apart from higher hosting fees, if there is a problem with the memory or HD, server needs to be shut down and your website will need to be offline for 30 minutes to an hour. So, I guess for those who are just starting up, going for VPS Cloud Hosting would prove to be more applicable. You don't have to pay more and you can use your resources more easily and can be scaled down depending on your needs. Since services are billed either daily or monthly depending on your usage, this allows the user to have a flexibility to manage their cloud server.
Because of this, cloud hosting is becoming more and more popular and more web masters are switching to it. While some still preferred the traditional web hosting due to some good features, there is no doubt that cloud hosting has already gained it's popularity especially to those who are first time users.
