Cloud Server Specifications:

Our Hosting Server is Cloud based which means

Server Specifications:

24 CPU Cores   2560 GB Storage   128 GB RAM   CentOS 7

Data center : Toronto, ON

When you’re new in the web industry and plan to host your first website or a blog, there are a lot of questions on your mind. Should I go with a free service or a premium one? Is this the right time to invest in a paid service and if yes, which hosting service do I choose?

Eventually, most website owners end up choosing Shared Hosting as it offers good features for beginners and is also quite affordable. With the passing of time, your business grows and so does the traffic. It is at that time you think – since my website traffic has grown the time taken to load is too much, which hosting do I switch to now?

Choosing the right hosting is not always easy. However, with the right resources and guidance, it becomes easier. In this post, we’ll cover Cloud Hosting and the benefits of moving to the Cloud.

Let us begin with understanding Cloud Hosting

Cloud Hosting is a Cloud architecture inspired offering, where we have combined the benefits of cloud as well as Shared Hosting. The benefits of the cloud being (Virtualization, Redundant Storage, Resource Scaling) and the simplicity of Shared Hosting.

The plans are designed in a manner that users do not but they can increase resources (CPU and RAM) based on their requirements to handle an increase in traffic. In case of a hardware failure, the server can be spun back up again with minimal downtime and no data loss due to the redundant storage architecture

Apart from these basics let us see what sets Cloud Hosting apart from other hosting services:

Benefits of Cloud Hosting:

  • Better Performance

It maximizes the performance of websites and web applications as the load is evenly distributed between the servers connected to the network. The availability of resources is also high as it is not dependent on a single physical server like in Shared Hosting.

  • Increased Scalability

Cloud Hosting allows easy and instantaneous upgradation of CPU and RAM, improving scalability as and when the traffic of your website increases.

  • Secure Data

Cloud Hosting provides data mirroring helping you keep your data secure. The data is mirrored on 3 different devices on various drives such that in case of any hardware failure you do not lose your data. This ensures hassle-free data backup and recovery.

  • Cost Saving

Although it may initially seem like Cloud Hosting is expensive, when you take into consideration the features it provides, the pricing is considerably more economical. Also in some cases, you only have to pay for the resources you use. Some of the features Cloud Hosting provides are, free data migration, fully managed hosting, resource monitoring etc.

  • Good Stability

Cloud Hosting is reliable as data has triple redundancy as a result of mirroring. This ensures that your data on the cloud is secure as well as if the server ever fails, recovering data is easier.

  • Incredible Speed

Cloud Hosting servers have low density that helps your website boost its speed along with varnish. Varnish is a web simulator that allows websites to sustain high traffic while loading pages in a super fast speed by caching the static and dynamic content on the web page. It can speed up websites by almost 1000%.

Award-Winning Customer Support

Even though it offers cloud services at competitive prices, their support does not disappoint. Linode offers several tiers of support that users can go through to resolve their issues.

Powered by Linux

Linode started as a brand for developers built by developers. In essence, It’s mission is similar to Ubuntu’s “for developers, by the developers.” According to an industry survey, 83.1% of developers prefer Linux as their development and deployment environment. As it’s an excellent choice for developers, who wish to work with an end-to-end Linux based application workflow.

What Is Linode Powerful API

It provides an extensive API for accessing the servers and products through custom code. Using this API, developers can:

  • handle tasks in Cloud Manager
  • Setup Linode Server
  • open support tickets
  • manage network IP addresses
  • configure node balancers
  • deploy Kubernetes cluster
  • manage invoices
  • Manage Linode storage

What Is Linode Data Centers

As you read this, it maintains 10 data centers across the globe. The idea is to provide the users with the choice of selecting the best Linode data center location that is closest to the target audience. This reduces the latency for the users and ensures a smooth experience for the visitors.  Linode data center locations include:

  • Tokyo
  • Mumbai
  • Singapore
  • Frankfurt
  • London
  • Toronto
  • Newark
  • Atlanta
  • Dallas
  • Fremont

Why Linode with Cloudways?

Although Linode started as a brand for developers, the current user base now comprises users with all technical skill levels. A significant section of these users has no experience or interest in managing their Linode servers.

The fact is that Linux is not beginner-friendly, and even experienced developers need to watch their steps while updating or patching applications to avoid server and application crashes.

Before operating servers for Linode setup, a user must have on-hand experience with Linux, specifically on server management commands. Next, to deploy PHP applications such as WordPress, the user needs to make sure that server software is in sync with app prerequisites to avoid application-level performance issues.

To set up the stack properly on the Linode server, the user has to:

  • Create a server with the required hardware specifications
  • Install your favorite Linux flavor
  • Install prerequisite software (LAMP for PHP applications)
  • Finally, the user needs to make sure that the core OS remains in sync with Apache, PHP & MySQL versions.

The process does not end here. The user now has to handle operational tasks such as malware detection, DDOS protection, etc. The agencies and business founders usually get frustrated since they don’t have the time and/or technical skills to handle these challenges.

This is where Cloudways comes to the rescue.

It is a managed cloud hosting platform that aims to take away server management hassles so that the users can save time to focus on their business processes.

It is ideal for users who lack the technical expertise required to launch a Linux powered Linode setup. Even if you have the necessary technical skills, you might not have the time to take care of server security and monitoring. It simplifies server management with proper Linode Backup so that you would focus on growing your business without worrying about server health and safety.
