What Is Cloud Hosting?

Cloud hosting is the process of outsourcing an organization's computing and storage resources to a service provider that offers its infrastructure services in a utility model.

The cloud provider oversees the setup, cloud infrastructure, security and maintenance, while sometimes allowing clients to customize hardware and applications and scale servers online. Compute and storage resources are spread out across hundreds of virtual machines (VMs) that load balance I/O demands in a cloud infrastructure configuration.

The cloud hosting model is a cheaper alternative to the traditional dedicated server model that requires companies to build and manage their own data centers. In the traditional model, servers and storage, with dedicated hardware and virtual resources, reside on premises and can be a costly capital and operating expense for organizations.

How cloud hosting works?

At its most basic level, cloud hosting falls under both the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) classification. Under the IaaS umbrella, users are given the virtualized hardware resources needed to install their own software environment as they build a Web application. On the PaaS side, users are already provided with a software environment through which they can install and develop the Web application more quickly.

Each server in a cloud setting carries out a particular set of tasks. In the event of one server failing, other servers function in a back-up capacity to provide the required resources to ensure the ongoing availability of web hosting services. When you store your website in a cloud hosting setting, that information is spread throughout numerous redundancies to ensure the website is always available online for both you and your web traffic.

Cloud hosting typically offers all necessary elements of website management, from cloud storage to database management tools. Many services are designed with non-technical users in mind, offering a control panel of sorts with numerous features that make creating and managing a website easier than ever. Through cloud hosting you can manage your domains, set up FTP accounts for remote file transfers, edit databases directly, and a variety of other functions.

What Types of Websites Use Cloud Hosting?

The usual types of websites that use cloud hosting are eCommerce stores, news publications, search engines or aggregators, social networks, and other high-traffic projects. Basically, it’s perfect for all websites that need plenty of processing power, bandwidth, and disk space to accommodate many visitors and the high amount of files and data they store.

The cloud hosting architecture makes it easy to anticipate traffic surges – which usually happen during big sales or when a blog post goes viral. The load balancing will ensure that the traffic doesn’t overwhelm the resources of any virtual server.

Furthermore, some of these websites may require tighter security to handle sensitive data, like customer information and payment details. In this case, they may opt for a private cloud as opposed to a public cloud. It usually comes with a dedicated cloud infrastructure, hosted on a private network to prevent unauthorized parties from accessing it. For these reasons, web hosts generally charge more for cloud hosting services than shared or VPS, which are usually more suitable for small to medium-sized sites.

How Do IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS Relate to Cloud Hosting?

IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS are three types of cloud-based business models. This means that they use the cloud infrastructure to deliver their services.

Let’s explore the differences between each model.

IaaS stands for infrastructure as a service. Businesses of this type typically offer cloud-based computing resources, such as servers and storage, for companies to run their operations. Many organizations now opt to buy from IaaS companies instead of building an on-premise IT system, which can be costly and difficult to maintain. In comparison, cloud services scale easily, and businesses only need to pay for the resources they use. An excellent example of an IaaS company is Amazon Web Services, a cloud computing platform that stores Netflix’s movie and series database.

PaaS is short for a platform as a service and refers to companies offering cloud-based frameworks that developers can use to build applications. Unlike IaaS, these vendors will manage the cloud server resources for the client, so they can focus on creating their projects. An example of a PaaS platform is Google App Engine. With this service, users can create applications without having to worry about infrastructure management.

Finally, SaaS is software as a service. In this business model, companies use the cloud to deliver a full-fledged application that people can access through a web browser or mobile application. The Google Workspace suite, which includes Google’s Workspace webmail, is an example of such software.
