    Cloud hosting can provide you excellent uptime at affordable pricing. That's why so many big online businesses are also using cloud hosting these days. However many webmasters has complained about security threats of cloud hosting, is there anything like that? If so how can we avoid that?

    Yes, cloud hosting a new technology in web hosting arena which is becoming popular very fast. Low price and great uptime are the two main factors attracting people towards cloud hosting I think. So, it is not surprising to know that big companies like Google and Apple store their customer data in cloud servers. A cloud hosting environment uses a network of servers and hence even if a server is down others will take care of the business. So, it is said that the uptime is really good in cloud hosting system. But I doubt if they can still give the industry standard of 99.9% uptime. In fact no hosting system could ever give that.

    When it comes to security, anything that can be accessed can be hacked too. As per experts if you are dealing with highly sensitive data, it is better to avoid cloud hosting since you don't have any direct control over it. It is advisable to go for a dedicated server in that case. It will give you the much needed privacy and control over your data.

    Posting anything online is always a risk because it can be hacked. Be mindful that once it is online there is always the possibility that the information can be hacked into by others. So therefore the possibility of hacking is the one greatest disadvantage of storing anything online.

    With that knowledge in mind, there are some really great advantages of storing information on cloud. With hacking aside your information stored on cloud is password protect and should only be accessible by you or anyone you give your password to. One other advantage is the convenience of being able access your information anywhere you go and wherever internet service is available. So for the most part it is safe.
