What is Cloud Hosting?
Cloud hosting has progressed significantly over the past couple of years. It is one of the most widely used technologies. Cloud hosting is built on the concept of divide-and-rule. The resources of the server are split across multiple web servers. So, in case of technical difficulties of the server resources of other server will be available hence, reducing the downtime of your website/application.
One of the remarkable aspects of cloud hosting is that peak loads can be managed easily without any bandwidth issues because another server provides additional resources that are required in such cases. Your website doesn’t depend on a single web server, instead, a group of server works together which is known as ‘the cloud’.
MilesWeb is one of the India’s topmost cloud hosting providers that launches your cloud instance within minutes.
What is Horizontal and Vertical Scaling in MilesWeb Cloud?
MilesWeb cloud hosting provides the ability to expand the server resources to meet your website needs. Without changing much of your application you can easily increase or decrease the resources of your server. This ability to adjust the resources as per your need refers to the term “scalability”.
MilesWeb cloud hosting is built to be scalable to serve you with the access to the server resources as and when required. To fulfill the need of your project, their cloud servers have the ability to scale any web application such as node.js and java in real time.

How does MilesWeb cloud help the growth of your website/ application?
In order to be successful your business needs to grow, if your business is not prepared for the growth from a website point of view, it may become an obstacle.

Your website may crash and you may lose your customer.

Paying for what you need and use – and nothing more!
Due to scalability, MilesWeb cloud hosting lets you pay only for what you actually use and not for unused allotted resources. This works similar to your electricity usage because it provides you electricity as per your demand and is based on a pay-per-use model. The way we cannot obtain electricity on a fixed monthly basis in the same way, MilesWeb cloud lets you pay only for the resources you have actually consumed and not on fixed monthly plans. And because you are paying only what you use, you save a lot of money.
Your website may not receive traffic at the specific time of the day, say in the midnight. Whereas there may be times when there will be a sudden spike in the traffic at a particular hour of the day. You may run out of resources in such situation if you are with a limited hosting plan or you may overpay for the resources you did not consume. So, to overcome such cases, MilesWeb has proved to be favorable by introducing its pay per use model for cloud hosting.
