So here is the thing, you are a newbie to the whole Cloud Hosting game. Maybe you’re a professional blogger just getting his or her start commenting on your given niche of the world (we hope you blog about delicious cakes. We love cakes.) or maybe you are a marketing manager of a newly formed online seller of sports goods. Either way, whatever you do online, you have decided to enter the Cloud Computing (Cloud Hosting) sphere, because you know without a solidly built website – without an excellent blogging platform or ecommerce website – your hopes of online dominance are going to fail worse than an asteroid attempting to knock Jupiter off its orbital path. Due to this, let’s take some time to talk about what you can use Cloud Hosting for.
You Love Blogging? So do we. Blog on, Mr. Blogger
In today’s Internet-centric world, people in the know understand that blogging is much more than simply stating your thoughts to the world on the most current political crisis or on what ingredients go into creating a succulent chocolate cake. Bloggers understand, beyond getting their thoughts and desires out to the world, that blogging is a way to attract and keep ad revenue coming into your website. Through various means and tactics (SEO, Internal Site Structure, Keyword Research/Analysis) which can be boiled into targeting a key demographic, professional bloggers can attract and keep ad revenue staying and playing on their site. For this reason, because Solar VPS knows you have a voice which likes to make money, we offer our SolarSystem star travelers multiple blogging platforms like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal. In addition we offer these lesser known blogging platforms; b2evolutions, Chyrp, DotClear, EggBlog, Nucelous, Open Blog, PivotX, Pixie, Serendipity and Textpattern. It should be noted, we offer all of these applications as one-click installs. We do this to make your life as a web hosting guru that much easier. So, the first use for your Windows or Linux Cloud Virtual Private Server: Blogging.
You Love Making Money? So do we. Bank that money, Mr. Money Bags
Alright, so maybe writing isn’t for you. Maybe putting pen to paper (digital pen to digital paper?) never made much sense to you. Maybe when you were in school Microsoft Word just annoyed the bejesus out of you. Due to this, you became an Excel person. You fell madly in love with numbers and figuring out ways to make a profit off of products and ideas. For you, the money making magnet, Cloud Hosting is going to take the form of an ecommerce website. Not sure what an ecommerce website is? Well, take a look at Amazon. Amazon is the largest ecommerce website in the world and although you won’t start off by aiming to take down the reigning king of ecommerce sites, one day, with a lot of help and luck, you just might be titled, “The Largest Online Seller of Goods”. But before that can happen, you need to figure out what ecommerce platform is for you. Will it be Magento or Avactis? How about CubeCart or BoxBilling? Or maybe your choice for ecommerce platforms will be Axis, AbanteCart or AlergoCart? Whatever your choice, these ecommerce platforms will allow you to utilize your Cloud hosting platform to make a ton of money. And oh, did we mention, just as with Solar VPS blogging applications, all of our ecommerce applications are one-click install. No fuss, no hassle. So, the second use for your Windows or Linux Cloud VPS: Ecommerce.
You Love Analyzing Trends? So do we. Analyze on, Mr. Analyzation
We have covered blogging. We have covered making money. To go along with this, both formats, blogging and making money, require the same function: analysis. Whether you are analyzing incoming traffic and bounce rates or whether you are analyzing how long it takes for your customer to order their brand spanking new Louisville slugger, analysis is needed. For you, the person who makes his or her living off tracking numbers, optimizing click-through rates and figuring out ways to draw in more European traffic between 2 – 4 am EST, a polls and survey application (P & S Apps) is what you need. Now we can’t tell you which application to use – personally we can’t get enough of Piwik – however we can let you in on some of the most popular P & S templates. Those templates include; Aardvark Topsites, Advanced Poll, CJ Dynamic Poll, EasyPoll, LimeSurvey, LittlePoll, Logaholic, Open Web Analytics, Simple PHP Poll and yes, Piwik. All of these P & S templates will provide you with real time reports on your websites visitors, the search engines and keywords your visitors used to access your site, the language they speak, where they are from, your most popular pages etc. Essentially, with P & S apps, you can know everything about your visitor without having to consult Google Web Master Tools (but let’s be honest, you are going to use Google Web Master Tools – certainly Google Analytics – to get a second set of eye balls on your website performance numbers). Once more, just so you know, all of these P & S apps are Solar VPS one-click install apps. easy peasy lemon squeezy. So, the third use for your Windows or Linux Cloud Hosting VPS: Analysis.
Is That All We Can Utilize Cloud Hosting For, Good Sirs?

And now, we must leave you. A wonderful slice of Apple Pie washed down with a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster is calling our name.
