Is cloud hosting much faster than shared hosting?
Yes, Cloud hosting is much more beneficial for businesses in every aspect. Cloud hosting as more advantages for a business in every aspect. Cloud hosting also gives you better scalability and allows you to increase your resource capacity at any time depending on the web traffic on your website. And in Shared hosting, you usually share the servers with many other websites and you also get limited resources in the shared hosting. Moreover, if there is any over traffic to your website then the pressure on the server will increase and this will result in slowing down or crashing of your website. Not only that if any other website which is hosted on that server is using more resources then it may result in slowing down of your website.
But today most of the people would like to choose shared hosting service for their website. The reason behind it is that shared hosting is comparatively cheaper than Cloud hosting. But we would like to say that Cloud hosting is a better option than the shared hosting because it can handle large traffic, and you also get improved security protection moreover cloud hosting is also more reliabile. And in cloud hosting it allows you to use the resources of multiple servers rather than having your website stuck to a single server location.
Features of Cloud Vs Shared Web Hosting
Let's discuss who has better Uptime
In Shared hosting, there may be an uptime of 99.99%. However, it is sometimes this may be changed due to the reason that if there is a heavy traffic inflow to your website then it may slow down. Or if you have exceeded your allotted resources then there will some downtime. Not only that if any other website which is been hosted on the same server and if that person's resources are been exceeded then there is a chance that your website may go down.
On the other hand, cloud hosting has excellent uptimes since the users are on a dedicated server. Even though there is an aspect of shared resources, and if there is any problem on one server then the websites are moved to another functioning server.
Who has better Security features?
If you take shared hosting, the security is based on database and applications which make them exposed to hackers. Because in Shared hosting in one server many websites are hosted so once one has access to one shared server then it is easier to access the other websites on it.
In Cloud hosting security management deals with arising issues using the advanced security control. But sometimes there will be some security breach in the cloud server like- network eavesdropping, illegal invasion etc during that time it will bring down the confidential data, data access control and data integrity. Cloud hosting service provides the users absolute control when it comes to security by the power of having dedicated servers. In case of problems with hardware, your website is migrated to other stable servers.
Now let's talk about who as better Speed
In shared hosting, as there are multiple websites are hosting on one single server so they might have less speed when compared to cloud hosting. And the servers powering shared hosting are almost always full to capacity. So if anyone website which is hosted on the shared server get more traffic all the websites which are hosted on the same server will be troubled with slow speed and it will result in terrible load times.
Whereas in cloud hosting even though the website is hosted on one server and if there is an issue with that particular server then that website will be transferred to another server. And whenever there is any hardware issue is which is been detected, your website doesn’t stay stuck on the nonfunctional server.
