Does it make sense to use cloud hosting instead of traditional web hosting?

Suppose I have a website, implemented on ASP.NET MVC 4. The site represents the classical average a directory number of items it contains about ≈ 10000-13000. There are such functions as search, filtering options, registration/authorization, admin panel, personal account, add/edit your catalog items.

Previously, I would not thought about using a cloud hosting. Now cloud technology became mainstream and many on the ear.

And yet, does it make sense to host a website not on traditional web hostingand cloud hosting? What is facing the benefits of using cloud hosting in the medium and long term for this kind of sites?

If you do not go into the details, cloud hosting means that your website is in case of overload will still work. While regular hosting people will see the error.

But now the cost of cloud hosting are too high. So if you have 5-10K visitors per day to begin with choose a normal hosting with VIP rates. If more traffic, then view a good VPS (if not versed in server administration, order this service or looking where it's free).

And if you understand that the VIP tariffs or VPS don't work for you (often there are cases that the server can not withstand the load), then choose among cloud hosting services.
Not a fact.
If a server is VPS does not hold, then it is very possible that it makes sense to look at bare metal - lamar_Macejkovic commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:00

1. VPS hosting gives you a fixed resources for a fixed fee.
2. Cloud - floating resources floating charge.
3. There is also an intermediate option, which calls itself a cloud, but it works as the first.

The most sensible argument is the gradual increase in load.
Pay more as you grow your system.

It is advisable if we are talking about the projects hosted at hundreds of thousands of rubles per month.

Your problem (if the engine is written correctly) perfectly solves the hosting of 150-300 rubles a month. It's not cloudy.

You buy fancy words, and specific opportunities and settings.

What's the difference between "cloud" and "traditional"? The definition of the word "cloud" no, "cloud-based" operations on the remote server, but the hosting itself is always remote, so "cloud hosting" is actually "oil oil".
So ask them, they know better.

now probably all the hosting cloud, and indeed quite a large part of them was the original cloud.
apparently you don't understand what the cloud is in fact in this case virtualization, I mastered 8 years ago and I became a cloud.
No, cloud is the hosting property to be dynamic. - lamar_Macejkovic commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:08
: well it is actually what on virtualization based. - joyce.Mayer16 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:11
: if the virtual machine (sold by host) is bound to a physical server - it is not a cloud.

if the host can easily migrate a virtual machine (i.e. VDS client) on any computer - this is the cloud.

in most cases, just the hosting is not cloud.
for example, in case of failure of the hard drive of the host (on which sit the virtual machine clients) clients have to wait for fixed disk.

cloud hosting simply moving the virtual machine (automatically) to another host.

that's the difference. - Eulalia22 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:14
: all much worse for the cloud of chemists than you think - joyce.Mayer16 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:17
: Implementation can work better or worse.

I'm talking about the principle of not binding to a host, this is clear. - Eulalia22 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:20
: if you look online then all the host cannot be called a cloud if offline-the storage wmca it's just ten lines of settings and you can move them to any host manually though - joyce.Mayer16 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:23
Of course, cloud and non-cloud differ what kind of lines settings.
There stand tall other problems.
Therefore, not all bother with the organization of the cloud.
And remain in a more simple - is linked to a host solution. Such web hosting is not cloud. - Eulalia22 commented on July 2nd 19 at 17:26
