Cloud Hosting

In Cloud Hosting, the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed as "the cloud". This greatly reduces chances of any downtime in case of a server misbehaviour.

With shared hosting, a website is placed on the same server as many other sites, ranging from a few to hundreds. Typically in this setup, all websites share resources, such as RAM and CPU from the same server.
Cloud hosting, on the other hand, offers nearly unlimited ability to handle high traffic spikes. On Cloud, your website is hosted not only on one but on several servers connected to work as one. Your websites don't depend on only one Server; even if one server is inaccessible, the Data is retrieved and processed by the other available servers with no downtime.

** Traffic transfer is measured in bytes, kilo bytes (KB), mega bytes (MB), giga bytes (GB) or tera bytes (TB). If a website delivers 100,000 pages each month with average page file size of 20KB, the data transfer per month will be 2GB. Almost 80% of websites on the internet uses less than 5GB of data transfer per month.
30 Gigabytes of monthly bandwidth or data transfer translates to about 30,000 unique visitors per day. The average website uses less than 250MB of bandwidth per month and receives about 50 visitors per day, so only very popular sites ever exceed 30GB.
Some web hosts claim that they offer unlimited or unmetered data transfer. Higher bandwidth cost money and tie up server resources, so if any host truly offered unlimited data transfer at any price they would not be in business for very long. If you read their Terms of Service, you will find the following language or something similar:

"If at any time the Customer’s website generates enough bandwidth usage to affect the performance of other customer sites on the server, we reserve the full right to terminate the Customer’s domain name without refund."

What this means is if the host feels that any customer’s website is costing them more money in bandwidth than the amount that customer pays, they will close the account without refund. Of course the resources of each server are set up not to exceed a certain amount of traffic, so higher bandwidth usage by any customer will automatically have an impact on other accounts on that server. The big question is what kind of bandwidth do they consider excessive, 1GB, 2GB, 3GB, 5GB, etc.? Is their bandwidth really unlimited or unmetered? If they do not measure bandwidth, how would they know when someone is using too much, and how can they keep their servers from running out of resources?

If you need additional traffic to the one specified, we can always provide for you at additional cost.

The snapshot feature allows you to reset the Cloud Server to a previous state after a possible problem with updates or change of installations.

Data is stored on Solid State Drives (SSD). SSD features a higher durability and faster response times compared to conventional hard drives.

The full virtualization allows for a high flexibility when using different operating systems and guarantees highest security on hosting systems.<

It's your choice: Besides Linux, you can also order your LekkiHost Cloud Server with Windows Server 2016 as operating system. Please note that Windows Server 2016 OS attracts additional fees.

You can upgrade the Cloud Server resources at anytime.

Your Cloud Server has its own fixed IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. Through these IP addresses, your server can be clearly identified and reached. All our Cloud Servers are IPv6 ready.
