What is Cloud Hosting?
When a consumer or business wants software hosting, they must first purchase the software they want hosted. For example, if you want Lytec hosted, then you first buy Lytec – you must own a license to that software.
Typically, once you own the software, you would then install the program onto your own computer or your own server. In this case though, you then instead have a company such as AZCOMP take your software and install it on their own server (or at a secure hosting center). Then, you are given secure access to your software through a remote connection to that server.
With your software installed on a hosted server, the hosting company will keep secure backups of your program and files, will maintain the server and upgrade the server among other things for a small monthly maintenance/hosting fee.
