Is Cloud Hosting Secure? - JohnDale - 03-14-2012 02:14 AM
There is no doubt that cloud hosting is a secure option. Some people may view the fact that the lower price tag for this form of hosting as a negative aspect when compared to the more expensive forms of hosting but this shouldn’t be viewed with suspicion. It is fairly obvious that cloud hosting is very different from other more standard forms of tradition and this creates the situation where savings can be made without having to compromise on the security of the site. The fact that there is an increased level of security due to the nature of cloud hosting should actually be encouraging people to focus on this option.

Yes Cloud Hosting is the new kid on the block, this is the reason why people are still hesitant to adapt and try to use Cloud Hosting. It is far more cheaper and faster than the 'norms' but people are still taking it step by step with encountering this new hosting. Also, one of the reason why people are hesitant is for my opinion is because of its security weakness, as we have discussed in the other thread, unless there is a breakthrough in their research regarding this issue, people will tend to use the old secure way of hosting.

I agree with Apaullo. However, if you can provide us with any update on the current security level and any newly implemented security measures for the cloud based hosting solutions, then I may change my opinion, JohnDale

I would love to read up on these potential security weaknesses. Can you point me to the thread you are referring to in the above quote?
Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately, there is no thread dedicated to cloud hosting security (except this one ). We have discussed some cloud hosting related security aspects randomly in other older threads.
You are welcome
BTW, it will be great, if you can share with us your opinion on the cloud hosting overall security, and maybe some comparison with shared, VPS, or dedicated hosting overall security.
Thanks in advance!

I would be happy to share my opinion and Go Daddy's expertise on these security matters. If either yourself or Apaullo could point me to any thread that voices security concerns with Cloud hosting, I would love to see it so we can hopefully address those concerns.

We discussed the issues pertaining Cloud Hosting and its Advantages and Disadvantages. If we can discuss this deeply then it will be great to us and to our members

Just as cloud computing is a boon for society because of its redundant nature, the security is that much tighter for the network because of its security redundancy.The security measures that go into protecting this future will only become more stringent as time goes on, so there's really nothing to worry about.

I agree Pranay about Cloud's security being more effective and stringent when time goes by, as it is the future of Web Hosting, the technology will be focused on it ad more advancement will be made. But we are talking about the NOW...about the security of Cloud now that was being talked about by our members here
