If you are searching for the right place to host your site, you have probably seen many types of hosting services. Which is right for you? And what do they even mean? This time we would demystify the Cloud Hosting and see what exactly makes it a cloud service and how.
What is a cloud service?
A cloud service is an on-demand service that clients can get over the internet, usually on a monthly subscription. It could be software (S-a-a-S), a whole platform for developing (P-a-a-S), or the infrastructure that you might need like bare-bone servers (I-a-a-S). Examples of cloud services are Skype, DropBox, renting a fully-functioning Linux or Windows server, or getting a bare-bone server without any software installed.
