If you are a businessman who is just starting to want to migrate to move your website to the cloud, aka cloud hosting, maybe this is a sign that your business is growing. But unfortunately sometimes websites that have started to be migrated can collapse if you make a fatal mistake.
In fact, cloud hosting technically has much better flexibility and flexibility than traditional shared hosting, especially when it comes to security issues. Where the good security of cloud hosting allows its users to feel safe.
Including you too, bro. If you are already using cloud hosting, you can be sure that your website, blog or whatever will be more secure from unstable server disturbances, malware, viruses and many others.
But it turns out that the CIO stated that there are 10 common mistakes that are usually made that make users feel like they have failed and their business has fallen apart. So, if you are a user who is starting to use a cloud hosting system, avoid the following 10 mistakes!
- Migrating without ‘governance’. In essence, you migrate, move data from your website to cloud hosting without any instructions from experienced or even without a plan. Sporadic migration to cloud hosting without thinking about the consequences will potentially result in some data being lost. Especially if you move on your own without any supervision, because the data transferred to cloud hosting is generally large and takes a lot of time.
- Assume that everything can be uploaded to the cloud. Indeed, migrating to cloud hosting will make a lot of files uploaded to a larger space. But unfortunately not so. For example, an obsolete application will actually be damaged if it is then transferred to the cloud. We recommend that the file selection is also done carefully before migrating.
- Treating the cloud like someone who has to keep his word. Indeed the cloud service providers will definitely do their best to deliver on the promise. But the existence of servers even using the cloud will also definitely have to be estimated. Like how many hours a day a user can contact the call center, or how many days a week the server can be used optimally.
- Entrusting the data and files that you want to migrate to cloud hosting doesn’t mean you don’t monitor it, right?. Especially if for example the reputation of the provider is very reliable. You have to make sure that every step of the transfer and migration can be monitored properly.
- Using only one way and one method, is a fatal mistake that has bad consequences.
- One of the weaknesses of website owners who start migrating their assets is the absence of service monitoring from the provider. When you are lazy to supervise the process, the potential for errors and damage will increase and can result in financial losses.
- Don’t expect too much from the IT technician who is far away. Everything must exist and be in your own hands so that if there is a problem, you can handle it quickly. If possible, when your website and property may have problems, use the services of a website technician that is within your reach first.
- Too much trust in scripts and automated coding is the umpteenth fatal mistake. There are so many coding providers who think that automated scripts will help website owners 100 percent automatically. In fact, when the script has a bug, for example in the accelerator, then you also have to fix it personally as well.
- Cloud hosting does have a guarantee that the level of security against malware is better. But it’s also not justified if you depend too 100 percent on that security. Taking more preventive measures so that viruses and diseases are not entered will prevent you from making other fatal mistakes.
- Forgetting recovery and disaster planning is arguably the MOST fatal fatal mistake by website owners. Because even if you use cloud hosting, uptime when transferring and migrating can be interrupted. And if there is no backup plan, then your data will be fragmented and even fall apart.
