Cloud Hosting is a faster and more advanced form of Shared Hosting. It gives you access to the simple and familiar cPanel, and is powered by robust Cloud Technologies. Cloud Hosting gives you the power to scale your RAM and CPU resources, and is run on a full SSD server.
SSD (Solid State Drives) are a form of storage technology. It is a much faster storage than the existing HDD (Hard Disk Drive) storage. Faster storage means your data gets written to and read from your storage faster. This means that your websites will load much faster if they are running on SSD storage.
The basic difference between Cloud Hosting and Shared Hosting is the underlying technology that powers both products. With Cloud hosting, you get everything that Shared Hosting offers along with the ability to scale your CPU and RAM, and an extra boost for your website with an all SSD server stack.
You are responsible for your backups and web content. We create our own weekly backups , and can restore your web, email and database content from those per your request. 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 or better, use a remote backup solution.
