If you are teetering on the brink of switching from your traditional host to a cloud host and you aren’t sure yet that you want to, consider the following three reasons why you may want to switch to cloud hosting.

  1. Cloud hosting is more secure – With cloud hosting, you have the flexibility to move your data around from one server to another without sacrificing security. In fact, this flexibility is itself a secure transaction. If you believe a server has been compromised, or runs the risk of being compromised, you can move your data to another server, test it, clean it, and move it back. You can do this freely without additional charge.
  2. More customization – Traditional hosts do not allow you to customize your server settings. But with cloud hosting, you can customize your server settings to meet your needs – current and future. You can change your server settings any time you desire.
  3. It is less costly per hosting unit – Cloud hosting is also less costly per unit since you only pay for the server space you use. If you are using 1,000 GB of space, then that’s what you pay for. You don’t pay for unused server space. Period.

Cloud hosting is here to stay. There are more benefits, but these rank right up there at the top.
