About Rackspace Cloud Hosting
TypeRoom Professional uses Rackspace's Cloud Sites product to host each website.
As noted on the Rackspace Cloud website:
"Cloud Sites is the fastest, easiest and most reliable cloud hosting solution. It's a completely load-and-go Web hosting platform that uses the unlimited computing power of the cloud to keep your Websites online."
What is meant by "Cloud Hosting"?
Most hosting companies keep your website on one server. If anything happens to that server (such as another user's site getting lots of traffic, or a server crash), your website is going to be affected.
When a site is hosted on a "cloud" environment, a website is actually hosted on multiple servers at once. There is therefore no single point of failure.
If a website hits he New York Times home page, Digg or has some other popular traffic source, the Rackspace Cloud will be able to hold up (unlike most shared hosting companies).
Speed. Reliability. Scalability.
A site hosting on a cloud environment such as this will be extremely responsive to the end-user, it will be reliable and it will allow you to be prepared to take advantage of a major, possibly unexpected traffic surge.
The Rackspace Cloud is a premium architecture and is backed by one of the best hosting companies in the world.
