The upcoming holiday season will surely be a busy one. While brick-and-mortar stores are preparing for long queues, ecommerce shops are readying for persistent visitor-loads. You must have heard about Alibaba’s great success impressive streak on Singles’ Day (11/11), a popular shopping holiday in China.

Well, it was all because of Cloud.

Is Cloud Hosting powerful?

Yes, it is. Cloud is currently the most robust way of hosting a website with near-perfect uptimes. A few years ago, hosting on Cloud was expensive. However, with the passage of time and successful adoptions, Cloud has become feasible enough for all types of business, including retailing. So, what the secret behind this power?

Cloud hosting harnesses the power of actual computing resources of a data center. When you sign up for a cloud hosting plan, you are allotted a specific amount of RAM along with dedicated CPU core that you can use. This means the resources are not shared. This means you are in control.

Should I host my WooCommerce shop on Cloudways?

Yes. You should as online shops are open for business all the time. A minute-long downtime can cost you a sale. Forget about sale. It will make a customer unhappy and he may not recommend your store to his friends and family. This means you are not only losing a single sale, but also a volume of prospects.

But, you will say: Cloud isn’t easy. Well, it’s because no one told you about Cloudways, the easiest way of deploying stores on Cloud.
