Cloud hosting generally provides better securing than shared hosting due to resource isolation, scalability, redundancy, and dedicated security features. However, it is important to note that security is a shared responsibility and it is key to implement securing practices such as updates and patching and regular backing up of data.
A cloud server refers to a virtualised server that functions in a cloud computing environment. It is a virtual machine (VM) running on a group of computers hosted in data centres, where scalable computer resources like processing speed, memory, and storage are made available.
Where your data is stored depends on the specific cloud service provider you choose. Most cloud providers have data centres located in multiple regions and even counties. When data is stored on cloud servers, it is normally distributed across multiple physical servers within these centres for redundancy and fault tolerance.
