The unprecedented advancement to technology has arguably brought the most flamboyant  discovery of the 21st century; Cloud Computing. 

As cloud hosting is gradually becoming the new normal, website owners accustomed to the  traditional system of hosting are coming up with a lot of questions. Website owners in Africa  with Nigerians at the center, are becoming more inquisitive about this advanced hosting  technology. 

Out of the passion to bridge the wide gap between Africa’s web hosting services and the rest of  the advanced world, Teqporte Cloud was born. Its goal is to avail Africans unrestricted access to  web hosting in its most advanced form, leveraging the scalability, flexibility and all-time  accessibility of the Cloud. 

Below, we look into the promising benefits of the course we champion – offering high performing Cloud hosting solutions to businesses and companies in Africa, plus how it edges  the traditional style of Webhosting used by all and sundry. You will see the length and breadth  of how your business can benefit from it and maybe decide to be amidst the front liner in Africa  to join the rest of the advanced world. 

WHY MOVE TO THE CLOUD? 

Simply put, Cloud is the future…embrace the future. There are loads of amazing answers that  will do more than justice to the question. Since we are interested in the Webhosting realm of  the Cloud, it would suffice to stick to this. And on we go… 

Pricing Flexibility 

One of the main factors website owners should consider Cloud hosting plans and providers is  the pricing structure. In traditional hosting, you are bound to pay a fixed amount monthly to  the hosting provider, regardless of using server resources and features or not. Cloud hosting is  operated on ‘pay-as-you-go structure,’ meaning you only pay for the resources you utilize. 

Thus, if your website receives an unusual influx of traffic, other hosting styles require that you  upgrade your plan completely, which is quite easier in cloud hosting. All you need to do is scale  up your resources while the spike lasts and return to normal when things flatten out. This is  crucial to businesses that expect traffic surge in some part of the years, like eCommerce sites  on black Fridays and other special events.

Cloud hosting charges are structured based on the extent of server resources your site  consumed. So, you can scale server resources to meet momentary demand in place of switching  packages across the board. 

High Uptime and Availability 

With the most type of hosting, your site uptime is dependent on the physical infrastructure that  your Server uses for operation. Except you set up a CDN, which could help minimize your  overall downtime, if your Server goes down, so does the websites it hosts. An avoidable feat  with cloud hosting. 

With cloud hosting, there’s every possibility of 100% uptime. Your site is built on the structure  of utilizing multiple virtual server resources, so if one has a technical problem or goes offline,  your site is automatically moved to another server. Additionally, with the option of scaling up  

and down, based on resources demand, you are guaranteed no usual traffic surge can bring  your website down. 

Server Autoscaling 

Few things are better than autoscaling in the hosting world. Unlike traditional hosting, where  you need to wait for providers’ approval before switching packages, cloud hosting gives  automatic scaling flexibility, also called elasticity. 

More so, if your traffic alternates spike and dip, it’s likely you won’t find a hosting provider that  will offer such flexibility. With cloud hosting, you get the best value for your money as server  resources are used on requirement basis, a degree of scalability not possible with the  traditional hosting style. 

Fortunately, most cloud hosting platform has made autoscaling even simpler. Teqporte Cloud,  as an example, provides an intuitive user dashboard with a safe one-click optimization button,  which you can toggle on and off easily. And instantly, this lets you view your site’s speed scores  and performance in real-time. Plus, should you prefer not to leave it on, you can use your site  management dashboard to scale your resources consumption up and down as the need arises,  just at the click of a finger. 

Simple and intuitive dashboard 

In the early days of cloud hosting, manipulating cloud platforms is somewhat challenging as it  requires a lot of expertise and a deep dive into some technical jargon. Thus scaling your Server  effectively and resources efficiently are slightly cumbersome. 

Today, cloud hosting has witnessed unprecedented growth, and its server management  dashboard isn’t left out. Anyone can now benefit from an intuitive dashboard without any  technical background; you can run, keep track, and scale your server resources to demand. 

Server Redundancy and speed

With traditional hosting, your site is housed on an individual server with fixed resources and  limits. If anything were to go wrong with such Server, then your site becomes unavailable and  inaccessible to users, and worst still, you remain offline until the server issue is solved. 

Some hosting provides your website with a redundant server environment; what does this  mean; a site backup replaces an existing site in redundant hosting, and this happens in seconds.  This can, however, fail at times because of how some redundancy is structured.  For a similar scenario that is rare in cloud hosting, your host wouldn’t need to load a backup  version of your website; rather, a concurrent live version is immediately available. 

Extra Security and speed 

Since your site is not hosted on any physical and individual server, threats like hacking,  overload, and hardware failure are somewhat out of the probable. Additionally, for cloud  hosting, your Server is automatically switched in case one has an issue without the potential  risk of going offline. 

Besides the ability to effortlessly scale capacity, cloud servers give users super-fast loading and  high-end website performance. One reason is that it uses a multi-server platform, which  reduces straining and stretching thin your server resources. 

Instant Server set up 

Unless you are going for shared hosting as a beginner, setting up your website and deploying  web servers takes a considerable amount of time when using traditional hosting. This could  hurt your business if you need an urgent website online. And to migrate from one host to  another, you are likely to be stuck in between. As you will have to wait for your hosting  provider to complete the setup process. For cloud hosting, your server deployment can take  place in record time with little to no hassle at all. 

Conclusion 

By and large, you’ve seen some reasons why you need to move to the Cloud, plus the benefits  of doing so. It is also worthy of mention that despite its array of inviting goodies, Cloud hosting  isn’t one-size-fits-all website owners and requirements. Still, for those who prioritize flexibility,  

scalability, speed, and performance at the best price value, you can never go strayed in the  Cloud. Check out our cloud hosting packages here.
