Learn about the differences between cloud based hosting, and dedicated servers. Web hosting comes in 3 basics types: shared hosting, dedicated servers, cloud based hosting. Each has its' pros and cons. If you want to learn powerful web development, then check out my crazy cool video training package: https://shop.killervideostore.com/

WHY IAM HERE

It’s very humbling to see your responses to the comments. I have 8 websites on a bluehost shared server using 180 gig storage. I can see approx 200 active users presently and expect some major growth in the near future. Should I move to cloud based hosting and if so can you recommend a hosting company that would be suitable for high storage and traffic?

Stefan Mischook thank you, keep up the good work

So many out there. You might want to check out AWS ... i hear they have a product for small business now.

Hard disks can be set up redundantly, power sources, RAM, NICs, pretty much everything, except CPUs and motherboard but then you can set up two identical servers redundantly. So you don't need cloud hosting for a better degree of safety. You need cloud hosting when you need immediate performance and no up-front cost for the hardware that would allow that performance. Of course you get better redundancy and better backup and tons more with that. In my opinion, traditional hosting is dying and cloud hosting is becoming not only much better suited but much more cost effective.

I switched from Bluehost to Digital Ocean. It’s not for the faint of heart. But damn is it faster. I went from 2-6 seconds per full page load to 1-2 seconds.

Basis for cloud is containerization, 100% learn docker.

Great input! I'm new to web dev and found your commentary really helpful!

Overall I liked you video. In my opinion a big advantage with cloud hosting is not dealing with nonsense like RAID arrays and worrying about hardware failures. Both AWS and Google have something called live migration and they'll move your "server" from one computer to another as soon as they detect a problem with the hardware. It does this without interrupting anything running on the machine. Obviously doesn't work for catastrophic failures but those are exceedingly rare. If I were to teach someone starting today I would advice them to steer clear of dedicated just to avoid the mess of setting up a machine, raid, make sure things are secure, etc. Amazon/Google/etc. have entire organizations dealing with that crap on your behalf. This ties into what you said about separation of concerns. Perhaps I'm missing of an aspect that dedicated still offers but in my mind dedicated is a dying horse.

Cloud is good so you can expand quickly.

Hello sir , I want to start a programming blog build in php/mysql which will have code snippets with live preview . So what should I used cloud or linux shared hosting. The server will hold lots of images and live preview code folders. So keeping all this in mind , what are your suggestions? Should I go for hostgator or AWS?

Stefan Mischook Thank you

99% of websites can use hostgator, goDaddy, killersites hosting (which is goDaddy!) ... cloud hosting is great but it more complex than standard shared linux hosting. Having the control panels that allow you to set up email and other aspects of the server is cool. I use both.

Thanks for this informative video. What are your thoughts on Google Cloud if I may ask?
Anis Sayyad (6 months ago)
Yes Google Cloud is Great!

I love the cloud in general. My app, StudioWeb, is cloud based.

How about virtual private servers?
Stefan Mischook (1 year ago)
They are kinda of a middle ground AFAIK. That said, I tend to lean either standard shared hosting for typical sites and now would just go cloud for important apps ... generally speaking.

Would digital ocean, heroku, aws, be your first choice to spin up websites for clients these days? I was literally checking this stuff out yesterday haha good timing :)
Cono 52 (1 year ago)
Digital Ocean it is, Cheers Stef, :)
Stefan Mischook (1 year ago)
Depends on the site. I am using Digital Ocean now and we like it. I hear (from a friend) that AWS is powerful but you pay for that. I heard good things about heroku but I have no personal experience. The good thing about the cloud server model is the easy scaling - you can start your client with say one CPU and less Ram and take it from there. If you client is small and may need to doing things like move files to the server, set up email accounts etc, it might be easier to go with traditional shared hosting, where you can provide a powerful control panel like CPANEL or Plesk that makes typical server tasks easy. Generally, I would say if you are developing an app, then use the cloud. If you are doing a simple website, or perhaps a CMS driven site for some small business, then perhaps the traditional server. We use both dedicated and cloud based hosting on our end.
