Is dedicated hosting cheaper in the long run compared to cloud hosting? Which one should I opt for when hosting high traffic sites?
Thanks. Suppose I have the right technical expertise in configuring everything from the ground up, which is the cheaper of the two? Would you vouch for Cloud or dedicated hosting?Cloud hosting is where the company runs your website or service on a server with other web sites or services. You generally get no control over the server itself; you get to upload files and administer the service, but the hardware and OS is the host's responsibility. Dedicated Server hosting is where the host rents you a complete server in their data center. They provide the hardware and OS, internet connection and bandwidth. You are responsible for whatever else you choose to install and run.
