With the opportunity of cloud hosting to have more resources available that is scale to meet your demand and only requires you to pay for what you use on the quantity of computing power.

Cloud hosting provides benefits to everyone in cost effective, more reliable, flexibility and better performance. Capacity is available on-demand, as required. Power and resources is load balanced to provide the user with uninterrupted connectivity.

Cloud hosting isn’t perfect for every kind of website owner. For example, if your site is currently running on a shared hosting plan and you never exceed the limits of your service or run into any issues with website performance, then you can probably stay put.

Even without cloud web hosting, you can optimize your website’s performance through things like caching plugins, image optimization and utilizing a CDN. These three things alone will greatly improve your performance without you having to upgrade your plan. As a general figure, if your site doesn’t receive over 100,000 visitors per month, then you probably have no need to upgrade your plan.

However, if your site has traffic levels that are under this figure, but you do get large traffic swings, then you might want to consider it. For example, let’s say you’re about to run a huge sales promotion and you’re expecting your website traffic to surge 4x during this promotion, then you’ll want a hosting environment that can handle this without your site going offline.

Flexibility: Cloud hosting allows you to add or remove resources without consideration of the cost. Capacity is available on-demand, as required.

Cost Efficient: Paying only for what you use. It's like your electricity and water supply bills - it's pay-per-use. Cloud hosting is the usage-based billing.

Scalability: Cloud hosting is easy to scale to meet your demand as the technology is highly scalable - enables easy and fast scaling in resource.

No single point of failure: The cloud is opearting on multiple connected servers. Instead of one server, cloud could help balances the load, increases capacity, and eliminates a single point of failure.

Cloud hosting is based on cloud computing technologies which used the networked infrastructure software and capacity to provide resources to users in an on-demand environment and the cloud technology is also easy integration of extra resources, such as Disk space, RAM or CPU. Users can only pay for resources that they use.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a technical coordination body for the Internet.

Specifically, ICANN coordinates the assignment of the following identifiers that must be globally unique for the Internet to function:

  • Internet domain names
  • IP address numbers
  • protocol parameter and port numbers
