Marketing360 Hosting utilizes cloud hosting from Amazon Web Services.
While Amazon provides the servers that host the files, Marketing360 Hosting also includes additional tools for automating deployments, scaling, container management, microservice monitoring, database management, file distribution, and more.
What is cloud hosting?
To simplify, cloud hosting relies on computing power from multiple connected servers that comprise a cloud, as opposed to being provided by a single server.
How does this benefit your website?
Cloud hosting is more cost-effective. Services can scale up as needed.
For example, if the majority of your website traffic comes from the United States, not much computing power is needed during the late night hours in the US. During this period of decreased traffic, cloud servers can scale down during this time to save costs. As traffic begins to increase the next morning, cloud servers scale up to handle it efficiently.
Cloud hosting also provides better performance. It maximizes the performance of websites as the workload is evenly distributed between the servers connected to the network.
For example, in a period of extremely high traffic on your website, a typical VPN server could start to slow down based on the amount of traffic. Cloud hosting has the ability to distribute the traffic between multiple servers, keeping them all responding quickly.
Is Marketing360 Hosting secure?
While many hosting solutions require you to purchase a security certificate and Marketing360 Hosting utilizes LetsEncrypt for free, automatic TLS certificates.
