Simple analysis of the difference between cloud virtual host and cloud server and how to choose
First, the cloud virtual host and cloud server architecture are different
The so-called cloud virtual host is actually similar to the virtual host we have used before, but it is better than the traditional virtual host in terms of configuration flexibility. And many cloud virtual hosts provide free or paid dedicated IP addresses. Cloud web hosting our hardware configuration and technical security are upgraded than traditional web hosting. But it is still a virtual host product, such as a virtual host managed by the cPanel panel.
The cloud server is actually an upgrade of our previous useful VPS host. Through the new virtual technology architecture VPS host, we call it a cloud server here, we can upgrade the hardware configuration individually, and the previous VPS host is the downgrade and upgrade of the overall package to upgrade and downgrade.
Second, cloud virtual host and cloud server resources are different
The cloud virtual host we see is actually an upgraded version of the virtual host, or a virtual host. When comparing with cloud servers, the resources we need to use are different, and the configuration of virtual hosts is relatively limited, such as hard disks, bandwidth, and the number of files. Of course, the price is also cheap. The cloud server is actually a virtual cloud server, the space and storage data, as well as the resource configuration are relatively large, and can be expanded.
Third, cloud virtual host and cloud server technology are different
We choose the cloud virtual host direct service provider to provide a WEB management panel, we directly manage and add sites, and most of them can only be used to build sites. With cloud servers, we can not only build websites but also run software projects and remote office business. Similar to a separate computer, Linux or Windows systems can be installed. This requires technologies provided by different server vendors.
For our users, virtual hosts may require less technology, while cloud servers require more technology and operation and maintenance costs are higher.
