In a world where you can buy a cloud hosting plan from Amazon, or from an ISP, or you can even rent it, you’d think there’d be a place for a website hosting company.
But in 2017, Amazon has gone too far, and taken the cloud hosting market completely by storm.
In this episode, we talk to Amazon Web Services VP and CEO, David A. Smith, about the rise of AWS and why the company is on a path to destroy the web hosting industry.
The best deals on Amazon web hosting todayThe number of cloud hosting companies has skyrocketed, from a few hundred in 2014 to over 3,000 today.
There are hundreds of cloud hostings companies, but Amazon’s own brand is probably the most well-known, and we caught up with Amazon to find out how they plan to take the cloud.
In 2017, AWS introduced two new features that make hosting easier.
First, you can now host multiple sites on the same Amazon EC2 instance.
If you use a hybrid cloud hosting solution, such as Instacart, Instacron, and Amazon S3, you have two options: host one site and manage multiple sites, or host one and manage all sites.
Second, you now can create a single-site hosting plan, with multiple sites hosted on the service.
With a single site, you are able to easily scale up or down your infrastructure, as you see fit.
If you’re not a web host or just like hosting a site yourself, this is a great time to take advantage of AWS’ cloud hosting plans.
Amazon is offering a new hybrid hosting plan called a “one-site” offering, which is an option that allows you to host multiple websites on the one server.
Amazon also launched two new web hosting packages in 2017: the AWS Web Hosting Standard (AWS WS-S), and the AWS Hosting Basic (AWSS).
This allows you access to the same hosting options as Amazon’s WS-R package, with the addition of hosting services like Amazon’s AWS CloudFormation, and the ability to use the AWS CloudFront, AWS Lambda, and AWS Functions.
These two new AWS hosting plans, combined with the new AWS WS-E package, make it easy to take full advantage of these new features.
If you are a web hosting professional and want to make the most of these features, AWS is offering the AWS-Hosted Platform.
This is a one-time offer, and can be used on a new or existing AWS account.
This offers the same number of hosting options, with access to AWS Cloudfront and Lambda and AWS Function.
If your organization is a small or medium business, you might want to consider the AWS Microservice Standard.
All of this comes at a price.
You’ll pay $59 per month, but it’s an extremely low price.
If that’s not enough, Amazon offers a 10-year warranty for this service.
This includes support and uptime, as well as unlimited backups.
AWS says it’s offering this service to customers for $49 per year.
If a company is willing to go that extra mile to keep its customers happy, this could be a great way to give customers a good value.
