Windows Cloud Servers FAQ
Unlike Dedicated Servers, Cloud Servers share the same hardware with other Cloud Server clients, making performance degradation caused by other users still possible, although quite rare. By sharing the same physical hardware, you also share the costs, and as such Cloud Servers can deliver similar performance to entry-level dedicated servers at a fraction of the cost. Cloud servers are also elastic, and can be upgraded automatically at any time.
- You should upgrade to Cloud hosting if you require superior performance, such as faster CPU, more memory (RAM) or faster read/write operations (IOPS). If your website is regularly being throttled on the web hosting platform (as shown in your cPanel), a Cloud server upgrade will be beneficial to you.
- Your website or application may require a special configuration to run properly. While web hosting does not provide full flexibility, Cloud servers do. You could, for example, increase the maximum execution time for your scripts, increase the maximum hourly limits of your email campaigns, and more!
- You may also choose to upgrade to a Cloud Server if you require superior reliability. Unlike web hosting, Cloud Servers do not share the same hardware with hundreds of other clients and generally provide improved stability, uptime, and performance.

Windows Cloud Servers come preloaded with Windows Web Server 2012, and are recommended for users that want to connect to their servers with Remote Desktop, or run websites using ASP or ASP.NET technology. Windows Cloud Servers include the Plesk control panel, which supports up to 10 domains at no additional cost, and work with MySQL and SQL Server (requires license) databases.
Unless you specifically require a Windows server due to technical constraints, Web Hosting Canada recommends Linux Cloud Servers for optimal performance and reliability. If you are still unsure which to choose, simply get in touch with our helpful 24/7 sales team.
Unmanaged Cloud Servers must be maintained by the client. WHC still ensures hardware and network availability, while managing the virtualization layer.
