I write and curate content for Bluehost. I hope this blog post is helpful.
Are you looking at creating a blog, website or an online store? Bluehost has something for everyone. Get started today.

If you’ve heard of the Cloud but aren’t exactly sure what it is, you’re not alone. The term can be found all over the internet today and is often used to refer to different things.
Sometimes “The Cloud” is used simply as a metaphor for the Internet. Other times it is used to refer to the technology behind services that run on the Internet instead of your computer, such as: Dropbox, Netflix, Flickr, and Google Drive. Here at Bluehost, Cloud technology is used to host your data on multiple servers. 
We specialize in providing the tools you need to have a successful presence on the web. A key part of having a blog or online store is having a place to store you data and a system whereby people from all over the world can access your data. That’s why we have powerful servers and talented tech support agents to help you manage your account.
And now with our Cloud hosting product called Cloud Sites, you have access to increased speed, storage, and protection for you data.

The Benefits of Cloud Hosting

Flexibility. Another major benefit is flexibility. Your Cloud hosting resources can be increased temporarily at a fixed rate if you are expecting a major boost in traffic.  You can scale up CPU and RAM at any time and without a reboot. This allows you to have the resources you need when you need them and at an affordable cost.
Recovery. Organizations using cloud-based computing no longer need to rely on their own elaborate and costly disaster-recovery plans. Studies show that companies who use cloud service providers are able to recover from issues almost four times faster than those who don’t.
Maintenance. A UK study revealed that businesses spend 18 out of 30 days on average just managing on-site security issues. We take care of this for you. Our experts deal with maintaining languages, security patches, port access, and more.

Cloud Sites at Bluehost

With our Cloud Sites hosting your website is more reliable. Your data is automatically mirrored across three distinct devices. If a hardware device falters, your site is automatically switched to another server.

Our failover technology automatically designates one copy of your website to keep functioning while the other two copies work to rebuild. That way you have no delays or downtime.

Cloud Sites offers you faster load times. Along with premium hardware and low-density servers, our cloud platform includes a varnish caching layer and global cdn to ensure your server resources are focused where they should be.
Static website content is managed more efficiently so dynamic requests can be processed quicker than ever.
The control panel for Cloud Sites lets you understand your site’s performance at a glance. Simple yet useful dashboards provide a quick view into usage trends, page download speed, uptime, global reach, and more. And with instant resource management, you’ll never need to worry about your site going down due to traffic spikes again.
More web traffic should never slow you down. As your online presence grows, amp up your cloud usage with the click of a button. Either pick a more powerful plan, or add CPU and RAM a la carte as needed.
All without having to worry about reboots, cryptic usage fees, or downtime.
We are thrilled to offer this new product and look forward to helping you have a faster more reliable website by hosting with Cloud Sites. Call our friendly support staff anytime to get started at (888) 401-4678!
