Here are some FAQs about Self Managed Cloud Hosting. If you have more questions, that aren't listed here, we're happy to help.
What is Cloud Hosting?
Cloud hosting is the latest form of hosting that has become extremely popular over the past few years. The main concept of Cloud Hosting is “Divide and Rule” – the resources required for maintaining your website are spread across a cluster of servers that work together, termed “the cloud”. This greatly reduces the chances of any downtimes in case of a server malfunction.
What is the difference between Self Managed Cloud Hosting and Fully Managed Cloud Hosting?
With Self Managed Cloud Hosting your website is hosted on several servers connected to work as one. Hence, your website doesn't rely on a single server, if one server is inaccessible then the data is retrieved and processed by the other available servers resulting in no downtime. BigRock's Self Managed Cloud Hosting is noted for its reliability, scalability, and flexibility. It is ideal for growing websites as it offers nearly unlimited ability to handle sudden traffic spikes.
On the other hand, Fully Managed Google Cloud Hosting is built on top of Google’s Kubernetes Engine and comes with auto CMS deployment. It provides you with superior server performance and instant setup. There is absolutely no effort required from your side to set up the server. Everything including CMS, SSL, Backups, CDN and caching come automatically set up for you to instantly activate them and get started.
How Reliable is your Cloud Hosting?
Our Self Managed Cloud Hosting offers high reliability. Cloud Sites automatically distributes three mirrored copies of your data across multiple devices to ensure safety and protection. The website is hosted on a virtual partition which draws its resources, such as disk space, from an extensive network of underlying physical servers.
What is the storage architecture used by your Cloud Hosting?
Our Self Managed Cloud Hosting uses Ceph Storage, which gives a 3N level of redundancy. In computing, Ceph is completely distributed without a single point of failure, scalable to the exabyte level, and freely available. Ceph replicates data and makes it fault-tolerant, requiring no specific hardware support. As a result of its design, the system is both self-healing and self-managing, aiming to minimize administration time and other costs.
What is the limit for additional CPU and RAM?
Up to 8 GB RAM and 8 cores can be added with any Self Managed Cloud Hosting Plan.
Is Upgrade/Downgrade possible?
No, an upgrade or downgrade is not possible between the plans. However, you can purchase additional RAM and CPU cores as per your requirement.
What is your backup policy?
You are responsible for your backups and web content. We create our own weekly backups of Cloud servers, and we can restore your web, email, and database content from those per your request. However, this is NOT a procedure you should rely on to keep copies of your content safe. We recommend you make your own backups. You can take a backup from your cPanel.
Is there a Money Back Guarantee?
Yes, we offer a 30 day Money Back Guarantee with our Self Managed Cloud Hosting.
How do I install my free SSL Certificate?
