If you have a quickly growing website, there will come a time when shared hosting is not enough. With that in mind, cloud hosting is here to give you the best of two worlds. The power and reliability of a VPS with the simplicity of shared hosting. Get dedicated resources and let us take care of all the technical stuff!
When a website is hosted on shared hosting, the website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds. Typically, in this setup, all domains share resources, such as RAM and CPU from the same server. Cloud hosting, on the other hand, offers nearly unlimited ability to handle high traffic spikes. On Cloud, your website is hosted not only on one but on several servers connected to work as one. Your websites don’t depend on only one Server– even if one server is inaccessible, the Data is retrieved and processed by the other available servers with no downtime.
At Govaio, we use cloudlinux with LVE containers. Each account gets a dedicated container and is served from there. Each container has resource boundaries to make sure the host stays healthy at all times (even if, one of the accounts is under a DDoS attack). In case the host needs to be put down, the account with its container can be easily migrated to a different host, to avoid unnecessary downtime. Our shared hosting accounts share hosts between several customers, whereas our cloud hosting clients are served solely from the host, meaning that only their accounts are put in the whole host.
If you have a shared web hosting plan on Govaio, upgrading to cloud hosting is extremely simple. All you have to do is order an upgrade from the control panel, and everything will be migrated automatically!
The main difference between two is that cloud hosting plan provides you with dedicated resources and the ability to manage them as you see fit. Meanwhile shared hosting typically hosts multiple servers on one dedicated machine and requires the user to share resources with other servers on the machine.
Our cloud hosting offers high reliability. Cloud Sites automatically distributes three mirrored copies of your data across multiple devices to ensure safety and protection. The website is hosted on a virtual partition which draws its resources, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers.
You are responsible for your backups and web content. We create our own weekly backups of Cloud servers, and we can restore your web, email and database content Disaster Recovery. However, this is NOT a procedure you should rely on to keep copies of your content safe; we recommend you make your own backups. You can take a backup from your cPanel.
The process to install the Free SSL on your hosting package is straightforward. Please note, Free SSL is only available for websites which are hosted on Govaio’s servers and the domain name is actively pointing to the hosting server.
Caching is a service that helps websites load much faster. Govaio caches static elements of your website using NGINX Plus, which will accelerate your website to load faster during times of high traffic.
