PaaS (Platform as a Service) is one of the three models in which the cloud services are offered. There are a few significant ways it differs from the traditional web hosting.

PaaS (Platform as a Service) does not require setting up or configuring of servers at the client’s end. It is a platform where multiple instances are implemented for a single account rather than relying on a single instance. PaaS can be more useful for the high-traffic websites which have performance issues in a shared environment.

PaaS offers HTTP caching servers that ensure loading of applications faster while eliminating issues the latency, downtime even if one server goes down. The infrastructure is provided by the service vendors, maintenance, security, updates, etc. are their responsibility.

Some features of PaaS include providing infrastructure for application development and support, auto-scaling, networking, load balancers, redundancy, monitoring, on-demand services, around the clock support.

Traditional web hosting requires the providers to set up application servers, database servers, ensure seamless execution, diagnose issues, setup again, configure and more. Web hosting is offered in different ways- shared hosting, VPS hosting, and dedicated server hosting.

While the shared hosting and VPS hosting are platforms where a customer’s websites and applications are uploaded along with several others. The server is owned and maintained by the hosting company. While shared hosting does not allow any flexibility, VPS allows the customers to host their own applications and give them the control.

Another web hosting platform is the dedicated server. This platform is exclusively leased by one single entity. That entity has total control of the server though the server is owned by the hosting company. The traditional web hosting relies on a single server and risks of downtime when the server is down is always there. The hosting providers extend support depending on the plan chosen by the customers.
