Cloud Hosting is a new form of web hosting that has gained great popularity in recent years. The fundamental idea behind Cloud Hosting is 'Divide and Rule' - a virtualization layer allows for separation of resources required by the server across instances and/or devices and this connected entity is known as a ‘Cloud’. This design allows Cloud to scale & offers greater protection from isolated device failures.
Since Linux is a free OS, most Linux hosting plans feature a lower cost. Many programs are also free. WordPress, Joomla, and other open-source programs were developed using Linux and are highly compatible with this operating system. Perl scripting is only available on Linux. Linux systems are renowned for their stability and get a lot of scrutiny for security from the open-source community.
Rather than being hosted on one single instances of a physical server, hosting is delivered on a virtual partition which draws its resource, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers. If one server goes offline it will have no effect on availability, as the virtual servers will continue to pull resource from the remaining network of servers.
