How Can Cloud Hosting Help a UK Business?
Do you have a business in the UK and you’re wondering if cloud hosting can actually make a difference?
Well, that’s exactly what I’ll be going over in this post.
I’ll be explaining everything you need to know about cloud hosting and if you actually need it.
What is cloud hosting?
I remember when I first heard about cloud hosting…
…I was so bloody confused. I watched video after video and read article after article.
And finally, it clicked. I truly understood what cloud hosting actually was.
If you’re having a tough time understanding cloud hosting, I’ll make it as simple as possible to understand.
With a normal hosting plan, you rent out a server. This server is what hosts your website, putting it online.
This server is basically a computer. So it contains things like ram and disk space.
When you start to get a lot more traffic to your website and things like more ram are needed to handle the traffic, your website will slow down and could even crash.
Cloud hosting actually fixes this problem.
With cloud hosting, you have an unlimited amount of resources at your disposable. What really makes cloud hosting incredible is it adapts to how many resources your website needs.
Let’s say your website is getting a few hundred visitors a day. With cloud hosting, you’ll only use the resources necessary to handle those few hundred visitors.
Now let’s say you’re getting a lot more visitors to your website. The cloud hosting will adapt and cater to the specific number of users on your website.
How is a cloud hosting able to adapt to as many or as little resources needed to maintain my website?
With a normal hosting plan, you’ll be put on a server to host your website.
With cloud hosting, you’ll be put on multiple servers. This way, your website is able to draw only the resources it needs at demand.
Is cloud hosting right for my UK business?
So I’m going to be completely honest with you…
…By you not getting cloud hosting, it’s not going to kill your business.
It can definitely make an impact.
You see, cloud hosting allows for the fastest speeds possible for a website. And speed is actually a Google ranking factor.
This means your rankings will increase for different search terms, bringing you new business.
We live in a time where people want instant results. No one likes to wait around for a website to load. Cloud hosting can help reduce the number of people who bounce off your website.
And by reducing your bounce rates, you will increase in your Google rankings.
As you can see, I’m a strong believer in cloud hosting and its many positive benefits. You should definitely get it.
