Rootcrate vs. Cloud Hosting - Hidden Costs

Cloud Based Hosting Comes With Hidden Costs.

Hosting in "the cloud" costs much more than the hourly price of a virtual server instance. Hosting a typical web application on AWS, for example, will result in separate charges for file storage, database operations, network bandwidth, object-store reads and writes, load-balanced traffic, health monitoring, and much more. A single virtual server instance may cost less than $100/mo, but you also pay separately for object storage, disk space, DNS, email notifications, and bandwidth.
