There are many offers almost continiously running from various web hosting service providers. Specially The Cloud Server Packages and Virtual Dedicated Server Plan and Packages are quite interesting to many Bloggers who want an up-gradation. We are specifically writing this article for Bloggers, not for other webmasters.
The reason is quite simple, if your Blog is growing, you might need an server upgradation, as your monetary source is growing, you might be tempted to upgrade to a Cloud Server or Dedicated Server. It is quite good news and nice to hear that you are upgrading, but the following points must be remembered while shifting.
Cloud Server, Dedicated or VPS – How much to spend for?
It is very important to think about your options to choose between Cloud Server, Dedicated Server or a VPS. If you are looking for a relatively cheaper option, but almost all advantages, Virtual Dedicated Server, as a traditional hosting solution may be a good choice.
If the Cloud server option is within your thought or you can pay the probable maximum cost, look no less than a Cloud Server. Right now, Cloud Server has several advantages over Dedicated server for the Blogs. The main concern of security in Cloud Server is not really as important as it is for certain industries which handles Critical Data. The reason is, for Cloud Server, you can easily add or remove extra resources.
But, the main thought – how much to pay for your next upgradation, be it a Cloud server or a VPS is very important. The reason is, if you are a Blogger, you are dependent on various parameters which are not really under your control.
Typically a Blogger does not sale any product or offers a service. So, the source of Income is through Advertisers and Affiliates. Frankly, Advertiser = AdSense. If AdSense somehow wrongly thinks you have done wrong or violated their policy, they will drop you from the program. So, you last month’s pay check becomes the last Pay Check from AdSense. Except other very few Advertising companies, others pay in cents, not in Dollars. Your income was $ 100 / day, now became $ 5 / day. Is it possible to carry the cost of a $ 200 / month Cloud Server or Dedicated Server? No. Simply you have nothing to sale to generate the revenue.
Another point is, for most blogs, the source of traffic is Google Search. If Google suddenly thinks you are doing the wrong, then your traffic will begin to fall and Revenue will decrease disproportionately.
When to decide to shift Cloud Server, Dedicated or VPS
If you have a business running side by side, you have no headache. Whatever gained from the Advertising Companies is your ‘top up’. Personally, I will suggest Cloud Server or VPS, what ever is your choice for the upgradation, at the time to upgrade, keep 12 months payment separately. This will allow you to have a time to create and popularize another website and keep the revenue coming again.
