Let’s start with the basics: a website is made up of files. These files can be code, graphics, animation, video and so on. To be able to have and run a website, you need to have a place to store these files so that people can access them over the Internet. So, just like when you rent a house to live in, you usually rent a web hosting space for your website files.
There are hundreds of different technologies and configurations for hosting, each one different and with different advantages and specifications depending on the demands that the site has. However, we can say that the two most popular forms of web hosting in recent years are Cloud hosting and cPanel hosting. But what is the difference between these products and which of them best suits your business?
In addition to becoming an extremely popular marketing term, there is a specific meaning behind the word “Cloud” and it is relevant to understanding the potential of this hosting environment. Cloud means that all web hosting services (DNS, mail, web, ftp, database) are run on multiple servers instead of a single traditional server. The advantage? In the event of a failure on one server it does not cause downtime for the site because it will be managed by the other servers.
The cPanel web hosting service is well known in the hosting industry and has become, over time, an essential tool for businesses. It is currently the most popular hosting control panel in the world and the one that most users are most familiar with.
