Cloud Web Hosting Services Powered by Amazon EC2

Web host SiteCloud.com (www.sitecloud.com) is entering the cloud hosting market with its proprietary cloud hosting platform built on top of Amazon’s Elastic Cloud, and featuring cPanel/WHM.

SiteCloud advertises twelve packages scaled within the cloud hosting architecture for the equivalent of shared, virtual private servers, dedicated hosting and reseller hosting services.

According to SiteCloud’s Monday announcement, its cloud hosting packages provides added flexibility for growing businesses.

“Our cPanel cloud hosting services allows us to host larger and more active websites,” SiteCloud chief executive officer Trey Gardner said in a statement. “Typically larger, more active websites are turned away from shared hosting providers and are forced to migrate to a VPS or dedicated server, a tedious process for most webmasters. At SiteCloud if a website becomes more successful and needs more resources, our proprietary system is able to automatically adapt and scale to the load. We then offer an upgrade within the cloud environment, where the users keep the same control panel and there is no migration to another server. We just allocate more resources  allowed to be used by the customer.”

A twelve year veteran of the Web hosting industry, Gardner said that SiteCloud’s cloud hosting infrastructure also makes its hosting service more reliable. “In the cloud individual hardware failures do not pose the same types of threats to the stability of hosting like they do with single server hosting which means more reliability for our clients’ websites.”

Established in 2009 in Santa Monica, CA, SiteCloud began providing Web hosting services in June 2010. SiteCloud also offers free website file migrations and 24/7 support.

At HostingCon in Austin, TX, Gardner discussed his other venture, Green Geeks,(www.greengeeks.com) where he is CEO. In the session, “Transitioning Toward Green Hosting”, he explained Green Geeks’ own commitment to lowering its carbon emissions through the use of wind technology purchasing RECs, and other initiatives.

Many online services providers have turned to Amazon to enhance their services, often using the company’s Web services in innovative ways. For instance, software developer Gladinet (www.gladinet.com) offers a cloud storage client that integrates several popular cloud services including Amazon S3 (s3.amazonaws.com) directly onto a PC desktop.

Likewise, by using the powerful platform behind Amazon EC2, SiteCloud hopes to make it simple for users to tap into the potential of Amazon’s services.
