Hosting is one of the major concerns when you build a new project (ecommerce, website, mobile application, IoT solution…) IT demands more number of concurrent users, security of data and adaptive scalability as its primary requirements among a host of others.
If you are building a new business from the scratch (ecommerce, website, application..) you probably do not have a precise information about which kind of hosting do you need. Hosting is basically a server and a server is a machine that will deliver to any visitor/user the necessary files that will make your project become alive. You need to consider 3 basic features: Bandwidth, RAM and Disk Space.
Bandwidth: Like any computer if your connection is poor your project will load slowly, and you cannot afford to loose potential users at the beginning.
RAM: More memory your system will have, more users will be able to use your tools without any latency or errors.
Disk Space: If your system has loads of information (picts, videos, sounds, data…) and the number of users grows rapidly you will need to stock a huge quantity of files and this could compromise your project if you run out of memory.
We always recommend to start your new project in a VPS or shared hosting environment till you will have the final product ready to publish. Amazon Cloud is arguably the world’s most trustworthy, secure and nominal cloud solution that are preferred by top brands like Airbnb, Expedia etc. It could move to Amazon Cloud to avoid surprises as they offer “elastic servers”. Elastic refers that they adapt their machines in function of your system demands. In a nutshell, you will never have any cut because you are using much your bandwidth, memory RAM or Disk Space. Amazon will manage this and, obviously , will send you an invoice for those peaks that your users caused.
