Let us begin with understanding Cloud Hosting
Cloud Hosting is a Cloud architecture inspired offering, where we have combined the benefits of cloud as well as Shared Hosting. The benefits of the cloud being (Virtualization, Redundant Storage, Resource Scaling) and the simplicity of Shared Hosting.
The plans are designed in a manner that users do not but they can increase resources (CPU and RAM) based on their requirements to handle an increase in traffic. In case of a hardware failure, the server can be spun back up again with minimal downtime and no data loss due to the redundant storage architecture
Apart from these basics let us see what sets Cloud Hosting apart from other hosting services:

WordPress is one of the most popular CMS platforms. It constantly evolves and releases new updates.
The first question, most WordPress developers and WP website owners have on their mind, is – what are the features of WordPress 5.0? This post is primarily designed to address this aspect. Let’s take a look at some key WordPress 5.0 features
1. Change in WordPress release schedule
Those of you, who have been using WordPress for quite some time now, know that it works on a set release date based model. In the past decade, there were 2 major releases, each year. Amidst these major releases, multiple mini-updated versions were introduced. But with the 5.0 update, the schedule for WordPress 5.0 features update will be changed as well. There will be no predefined dates for update releases.
Therefore the WP users feel that the quality of the update is sidelined by the deadline. Hence to combat this issue, WordPress decided to deliver fewer yet more meaningful updates.
2. Gutenberg Editor and Plugin
If you are a veteran WP developer, then you would agree with me that the current WordPress visual editor is not intuitive enough to make visual changes. You need to utilize short-codes and HTML extensively before you can get the desired output. That being said, the Gutenberg editor is going to be one of the most sought-after updates in terms of the visual editor for WordPress. The core benefit of it is that it optimizes direct manipulation of the visual presentation of the content.
Bonus trivia: The editor is named after Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of a moveable type of printing press.
3. Mobile Optimization
Mobile experience is one of the most important aspects of any online journey. Everyone from UI/UX specialists to SEO experts have been constantly working on improving the mobile experience of the websites.
The WordPress 5.0 features promise to have updates that help improve the overall mobile responsiveness of WordPress based websites. This definitely looks promising and will go a long a way for both developers and marketers.
4. Cropping Background Images
A small update, but a functional one nevertheless. Previously if we were to do this, we would need to manually edit the image using tools like Photoshop and then re-upload them on our WordPress site. This is going to change and now you will be able to crop and edit background images before they go live.
Other WordPress 5.0 feature changes include security fixes and updating the front-end editor which will be lighter and faster. However, at this point in time, we do not have enough meat on the matter. We will be sure to keep you posted as we get updates.
Please don’t forget to check out our WordPress Hosting plans, which take care of automatic WordPress updates so that you never have to worry about missing out a WP update and lose any of the amazing features.
As you work through your long list of things to take care of before you launch your business, you’ll need a website, and of course, a domain name. Consider this your easy guide to choosing the right domain name for your business.
Why Domain Names are So Important You may have found during your research that you could snag a free domain name (also called a URL) from sites like WordPress, Blogger, etc. But in reality, a free domain name could hurt your business more than it helps. Besides the fact that you’re essentially advertising that brand rather than your own (usually the sites are something like mybusiness.wordpress.com or mybusiness.blogspot.com), there are other reasons why buying your own URL is the right decision.
Now let’s look at what you need to know how to choose your domain name.
Your domain name and website are your digital credentials. It’s important that you look professional and by investing a little time and money into the process of choosing your domain name and setting up your website, you can do just that. But once you do, you instantly establish credibility, and that helps get sales rolling in.

There is no doubt that cloud computing has revolutionized the world of information technology. Moving to the cloud is a choice that every business that is serious about scaling up must face. A critical step is understanding the right cloud computing model; for example- the difference between public cloud and private cloud. If the next step for your small business is to move your IT infrastructure to the cloud, this blog will explain the choices available to you and what they entail.
First, what is a ‘Cloud’?
Many businesses are still not quite sure what the ‘cloud’ is and how important it is for a modern business. ‘Clouds’ are virtualized data centres that are made available or shared to meet the dynamic demands of any business application that wishes to plug into it. As everything here is entirely virtualized, cloud computing can be more efficient and valuable in terms of cost than regular, physical data centers.
What are common reasons that companies use the ‘Cloud’ for?To set up and manage;
Businesses do this in 3 main ways:
Through the ‘Public’ version of the ‘Cloud’- also known as ‘Public Cloud’:
In a ‘Public Cloud’ model, services are rented out by the Cloud provider over the internet to the public on a pay-as-you-go model. In other words, if you, as a small business, require cloud computing services, you can partner with a cloud service provider that will be responsible for the set up, upkeep and management of the data center and services for you, freeing you from having to purchase, manage and maintain all the infrastructure yourself. As you can gather, most companies who favour a public cloud do so to save deployment time and management complexities. Unlike the popular opinion of public cloud services, security breaches are in fact quite rare.
Who are the top Cloud providers in the industry right now?
Other notable providers include OpenStack, IBM, Oracle and Cisco.
Exclusivity is the defining characteristic of the Private Cloud set-up. The services are for the dedicated use of a single organisation. As you can guess, however, this model will need to be managed with your own internal resources. Servers, storage and related infrastructure will be owned and paid for by your organisation.
How do you benefit with a Private Cloud?
Difference between Public Cloud and Private Cloud -in summary:
Most companies today, however, would insist on a combination of the two- or what is know in the industry as ‘Hybrid Cloud’. The Hybrid Cloud offers the benefit of both models including a feature that allows you to deploy applications on the private cloud and utilize resources on the public cloud during demand spikes.
Did you get a simpler, clearer understanding of the difference between public cloud and private cloud and what computing model would work? What choice have you made for your business? Let us know!
