You are responsible for your backups and web content. We create our own weekly backups of Cloud servers, and we can restore your web, email and database content from those per your request. However, this is NOT a procedure you should rely on to keep copies of your content safe; we recommend you make your own backups. You can take a backup from your cPanel.
We use Ceph Storage, which gives 3N level of redundancy. In computing, Ceph is completely distributed without a single point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level, and freely available. Ceph replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, requiring no specific hardware support. As a result of its design, the system is both self-healing and self-managing, aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
A Quick Resize allows for access to additional RAM and CPU allocations. This option is ideal for those experiencing a sudden increase in traffic, and need RAM and CPU resources to handle it without increasing storage. The drawback to this is that you pay the same cost as you would with a Full Resize. If a Quick Resize is selected and you wish to have the storage capacity match the Full Resize, you can contact our support team for assistance at a later time.
Traditional hosting sees your website leverage the power of one particular server's CPU, RAM, storage, and data transfers. For example, shared web hosting has your website share resources with other sites that are also hosted exclusively on one server. The result is many annoying limitations in terms of power, and the inability to handle sharp traffic surges. For better service, you can pay for a virtual private server, or even a dedicated server of varying power. In all these case, you're basically relying on one server, and that's it. Cloud hosting, however, kicks that single-server hosting model to the curb in a marvelous manner. With cloud hosting, your website draws resources from multiple servers.
Cloud hosting assures high availability and uptime because of the multiple servers in a redundant system. If a server fails, its files and functional responsibilities are instantly migrated to another server with no downtime. Memory capacity and CPU power also expand on demand to meet your needs or compensate for those of another customer without impacting other users in the network. It is ideal for sites that may experience wide fluctuations in traffic volume.
Cloud hosting's use of multiple servers gives it certain advantages over traditional hosting. For example, if your website experiences a sudden traffic spike, it can pull resources from another server to prevent slow page loads or, worse, the site going down. In addition, cloud hosting makes it incredibly simple for your to scale resources up or down, as needed.
With many other VPS plans, they cut off and limit your resource usage. Our Cloud VPS plans are different in the sense that they offer Burstable RAM limits. You will have a dedicated amount of RAM during low traffic periods (1.5GB for Cloud VPS-1000, 3GB for Cloud VPS-2000 and 6GB for Cloud VPS-3000), but are able to use a higher amount during high traffic surges and spikes.
Cloud hosting truly shines in its ability to scale. Essentially you’ll have an entire network or servers to tap at a moments notice for additional storage, or to meet rising traffic needs. Also, due to the high availability of servers, you’ll have very high uptime and great performance. If a physical server failure ever occurs then your site will be switched to another server.
Cloud hosting refers primarily to the use of virtual hardware, network, storage and composite solutions from a cloud vendor. It is enabled through virtualization, whereby the entire computing capacity of an infrastructure or data center is distributed and delivered to multiple users simultaneously. The user uses underlying infrastructure to host its own applications, services and data. For example, a physical server can be virtualized and consolidated to host several cloud servers, all sharing the processor, memory, storage, network and other resources.
Some of the best VPS hosts, like the one below, power their plans with cloud networks to take advantage of server clusters boasting high levels of redundancy and availability. The optimized architecture streamlines operations for the hosting provider, who in turn can choose to pass the savings onto customers. Take a look at our recommendation for affordable cloud-powered VPS:
At Hostinger , we use cloudlinux with LVE containers. Each account gets a dedicated container and is served from there. Each container has resource boundaries to make sure the host stays healthy at all times (even if, one of the accounts is under a DDoS attack). In case the host needs to be put down, the account with its container can be easily migrated to a different host, to avoid unnecessary downtime. Our shared hosting accounts share hosts between several customers, whereas our cloud hosting clients are served solely from the host, meaning that only their accounts are put in the whole host.
