Scalability refers to the ability of a website or application to handle an increasing amount of traffic or usage without negatively impacting performance. To improve scalability, you can:
- Use a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to distribute content closer to users, reducing the load on your server
- Use load balancers to distribute traffic across multiple servers
- Use caching to reduce the number of requests to your server
- Use a database cluster to distribute data across multiple servers
- Optimize your code for performance
It’s also important to regularly monitor your website’s performance and usage, so that you can identify any bottlenecks and take appropriate action to address them.
Nexcess offers auto-scaling, which is free for 12 hours, whereas Cloudways allows you to allocate more server resources within a few minutes.
Note: Cloud hosting can scale seamlessly and handle big traffic spikes. Usually, you only pay your web host more money for the time you need the additional resources. Also, if it’s long-term growth, there’s no need to move or rebuild the server as it can scale with you.
