Now, with the increase in the use of cloud servers, many users who use traditional virtual machines have begun to choose a million people connected virtual machine, because the virtual machine is relatively better and faster. But virtual hosts also have their own advantages.
Here are the advantages of virtual virtual hosts:
1. Virtual host is very cheap
In the process of using a virtual machine, it is not only necessary to rent the service fee such as the host, but also need to upgrade sometimes, and the cost of host upgrade is high or low. In this way, it costs an average of several thousand dollars a year. Web hosting is relatively cheap, sometimes costing hundreds of dollars a year. For the lack of funds for the webmaster, this is a good choice.
2. The data of virtual host site is more secure
All content on the site is connected to the Internet. Some trade secrets and personal information need to be encrypted. In particular, hackers now face a huge threat. Virtual hosts are used to store data on the server, which is relatively more secure. However, it can not completely eliminate hacker attacks, but it is much safer to store data on the network than to use virtual machine. The server has more protection than network protection. In today's virtual machine security function has not yet been realized in the particularly ideal stage, website administrators who want website security will undoubtedly choose the traditional host.
3. Virtual host has less latency
The use of cloud host data is directly carried out on the computer, which may have a relatively delay, but the virtual host is different. It bypasses the transportation network and directly accesses the Internet. The network path between the website and visitors is reduced less, so the delay is lower.
4. Flexibility of virtual host network
Cloud servers are not as flexible as virtual hosts. To use a cloud host, you need to make sure that your site uses a cloud hosting vendor specific application or format. If you are upgrading your site, your data will be lost, and you will not be able to insert spreadsheet files created as Google Documents in other applications. If you use a virtual host, you can upgrade the site at any time as needed without worrying about site data loss.
5. Virtual host technology support is in place
Compared with virtual host, the concept of cloud is relatively late, and some aspects of technology are not perfect, so the technical support may not be perfect.
However, cloud computing is constantly developing, technology is also constantly developing, many people are studying this field. Both virtual host and cloud server must be selected according to their own needs.
