As the world embraces technology, new businesses are finding their way into the market. The vibrant startup-landscape is rife with entrepreneurs trying to make a mark in the economy. Being tech-driven, the current markets have made it necessary for small businesses and startups to have an online presence. Unlike the more established companies, these businesses have specific requirements, especially for web hosting. In this article, we will look at the reasons why Cloud Hosting services is an efficient choice for small businesses and startups.

What do small businesses and startups need from the web hosting provider?

As mentioned earlier, when a business is in its initial stages (startup or still a small business), it has specific requirements for web hosting like:

  • Costs cannot be too high
  • The host should offer scalability of resources based on the market response
  • Minimal downtime. While this is applicable to all businesses, for small businesses and startups this is more critical since users experiencing a lagging website might never return

In simple words, the website should be able to deliver the experience offered by larger businesses at lower costs to be able to project themselves as reliable enterprises for the users.

Why is Cloud hosting an efficient choice for startups and small businesses?

Cloud Hosting Service entails multiple servers which are connected virtually and controlled by a central algorithm. Among the wide array of features and benefits offered by cloud hosting, here are the ones that make it an efficient choice for startups and small businesses:


The algorithm that controls the virtual servers is designed to choose the most optimal way of displaying a website when a user visits it. Cloud hosting does not rely on a single server and spreads the data across multiple servers in different locations. Providers offering competitive cloud hosting services also deploy tools like caching servers (Varnish Cache) to further increase the page load speeds by up to 1000%.


While shared hosting plans are probably the cheapest, when you look at costs, it is important to ascertain the cost-efficiency rather than the amount itself. Cloud hosting services offer instant scalability which means that you pay only for the resources that you need. Also, high speeds and maximum uptime make them a more cost-efficient option than other plans.


Small businesses and startups can find it very difficult to predict site traffic since they are relatively new in the market. Therefore, they need a hosting plan which can offer instant scalability to accommodate sudden spikes in traffic. When the business is attracting more users, you wouldn’t want them to visit a slow site, right? Cloud hosting services allow you to increase the CPU and RAM with a single click!


Most cloud hosting services offer around 99.9% uptime assurance based on regular data backups, failover & redundancy design, and state-of-the-art infrastructure. For a business which is just finding its bearings in the market, the website needs to be available for every customer who visits it. Hence, maximum uptime is another benefit that cloud hosting offers to new businesses.

Summing up

As can be seen above, cloud hosting services are certainly an efficient choice for startups and small businesses. However, do make sure that you select the right hosting provider for your business by following the tips mentioned in this article.
