Cloud Hosting Vs VPS: What’s The Difference?

The main difference between cloud and VPS (virtual private servers) is that VPS is a dedicated server with guaranteed resources. Whereas with cloud hosting you don’t. Hosting in the Cloud is easier to set up, but there is a trade-off due to limitations in what you can do! This is because the servers are controlled by the cloud provider and not you. For example: your cloud provider may not support PHP, or allow you to use your own domain name When hosting on a VPS however, there are no limitations, and you can install whatever you want.

When to consider Cloud Hosting

Cloud hosting is quite beneficial to large websites or portals, especially if there is a lot of content and website visitors. It is used by large enterprises and company’s such as Netflix, Airbnb, and Meta. If your website is as large as any of these, you’ll already be using a cloud hosting solution.

However, as a small organization there are reasonable and trustworthy cloud hosting services available today such as Google & AWS. Generally speaking cloud hosting is more expensive and requires more technical knowledge to maintain than the managed solutions we provide.

Bigger isn’t always better!

As discussed above there are definitely some advantages to using the cloud. That said the main advantage to using our services are that they are managed locally and supported all day, every day. Most cloud hosting companies only offering a 24hr response! (unless you pay for premium support).

Many of the existing service providers like Go Daddy are still using outdated software on their servers, this means your pages are using a protocol called HTTP/1. All of our servers use the much faster HTTP/2 protocol. If you are considering moving to a different provider due to loading speed, consider that our servers work at comparable speeds (especially with CDN). But with a much lower cost than Amazon / Google etc.

Another thing to consider when setting up a new cloud server, you could be assigned a flagged IP address. This means inheriting a bad IP reputation from the previous user! As a result you may suffer from the “ bad neighborhood effect ” and thus considered a possible spam source.
