    Hello Claire, welcome back!

    I will try to give most appropriate answers for your questions.

    Yes, cloud hosting has various definitions available on Internet. It is not only you but, for many people it is still a mystery. However, you can check the following blog post to know the exact definition of cloud computing.

    Q. What is cloud hosting & how it differs from Cloud computing?
    A. Cloud Hosting is nothing different but a concept derived from Cloud Computing technology. Cloud Hosting environment is a set of several systems connected together over the Internet to deliver pooled computing resources on-demand. Unlike traditional hosting services (i.e. Dedicated and shared hosting), here in cloud the users can have access to multiple servers and scale them according to their requirements. Cloud Hosting solution doesn't limit a user or an application from using a specific amount of resources. The resources can be scaled up and down depending upon the current suitation and the user is charged only for the used resources.

    Q. Is it reliable, affordable and offers high performance than that of dedicated server hosting?
    A. Yes, absolutely. To make it more simple to understand, a dedicated server has limited resources. There is always a limit on the no. of processors and HD's that can be integrated into a dedicated server. It is really not possible to operate 100K websites from a single dedicated server. However, it is certainly possible with cloud server hosting solution. Cloud Hosting is a cluster of servers, which allows you to add the same server hardware to a cloud increasing the power of the cloud. In cloud, the resources of all the machines (servers) are shared, and hence, it is possible to vitually host millions and billions of websites which would look like a single server, but in reality it is a cloud of hundreds of servers. In a very large scale, cloud hosting is highly profitable, as the management costs would certainly trim-down, however, the hardware costs will remain the same.

    Q. Is cloud hosting really secure?
    A. Yes, definitely cloud hosting is a fully secured solution, that's why businesses are moving toward cloud solutions. Here are two more articles explaining Cloud Hosting Security.

    If you have any more concerns regarding cloud hosting security, we will be more than happy to clear your doubts.

    Q. Is the data migration process in cloud hosting different from typical hosting services?
    A. Yes, it is far different from typical hosting services. Cloud hosting has the ability to migrate data from old equipment to new gear, or from one server to another, seamlessly without briging systems offline and disrupting applications and users.

    Q. Which cloud hosting solution would you recommend and why?
    A. I would recommend you to go for our recently launched eNlight Cloud Hosting Solution – an Intelligent and Auto-Scalable Cloud Platform. Check out the following Enlight Cloud related articles that will help you to understand why you should go for eNlight Cloud:

      Thanks for your response, Macdale. As I am getting more into the cloud computing, it is getting more wide. I have one more question...

      I have seen in many cases that cloud computing providers such as Amazon, GoGrid offers services based on Xen server. Are there any providers who can actually offer cloud computing services on dedicated servers?

        Agreed with that. well cloud hosting is a new type of web host foundation that allows clients highly effective, scalable and efficient web host based on grouped load-balanced web servers and application payments. A cloud organised website may be more efficient than solutions since other computer systems in the cloud can make up when a single item of components goes down. Also, local power interruptions or even mishaps are less difficult for cloud organised websites, as cloud web host is decentralized. Reasoning web host also allows suppliers to cost clients only for sources absorbed by the customer, rather than a smooth fee for the amount the customer desires they will use, or a set cost advance components financial commitment. On the other hand, the deficiency of centralization may give clients less control on where their information is situated which could be a problem for clients with information protection or comfort issues.

          The best thing about cloud hosting is that it is based on a clustered setup. This goes on to say that one server is always available to balance the load. The cloud hosting platform is specifically beneficial for the eCommerce websites as they have to deal with a lot of online transactions and they also have to maintain a large customer database.

            The main concept behind cloud hosting is "divide and rule." Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting which became very popular. The required resources are spread over various servers and are rendered as per need basis.
            Cloud hosting provides hosting for website on the virtual server.
