Frequently Asked Questions
Get the answers to frequently asked questions about our cloud hosting service.
What is cloud hosting?
Cloud hosting is the type of web hosting that is located on multiple virtual servers. This means, all users data is being kept on a few servers, so even if one server gets down, another one keeps your website up. Cloud hosting helps to ensure maximum uptime and improve website's speed.
How does Cloud hosting work?
Cloud hosting provides a virtual server that you have all the control over. Just like in a dedicated server, you receive allocated resources that you do not need to share with anyone, a dedicated IP address and much more.
What is the architecture of Hostinger Cloud Hosting?
We use a few different cloud technologies here at Hostinger. For example our free web hosting project uses LXC containers to serve end user requests. However these containers are not per-user , but per-request. Meaning that our compute nodes serve customers from all containers, depending on which one is available at the moment. Our database nodes have proxysql running in front to load balance the requests aimed at database nodes. We use a tight ruleset making sure only the account owner is able to access his own account. We do not expose any internal services to endpoint clients.
