Alibaba Cloud provides web hosting solutions suitable for businesses of all sizes. We help you reduce development, maintenance, and IT costs while guaranteeing the security, scalability, and stability of your site.
MyBB is a user-friendly tool for setting up online forum websites with database failover,an extensive plug-in system, and powerful forum moderation functions. It supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite.
Traffic fluctuations are unavoidable for websites. If traffic volume spikes during a certain period, customers may experience high latency. It is crucial to deploy an architecture that automatically scales in response to traffic volume changes to provide a consistently high performance service with minimized cost and effort.
This solution deploys websites and applications on an auto scaling architecture, allows automatic adjustment of the compute capacity in response to traffic fluctuations, and helps you maintain a balance between performance and cost with scaling rules. It provides high availability and fault tolerance by evenly distributing ECS instances across zones as the compute capacity is scaled, supports database scaling to meet increased data demands, and supports Redis caching across zones to ease the load on the database. In this solution, Auto Scaling adjusts the number of ECS instances to ensure optimal performance with minimized costs, ECS instances are deployed across two zones to ensure high application availability, and the ApsaraDB for Redis instance is deployed in multiple zones to provide data caching.

Elastic Compute Service
An online computing service that offers elastic and secure virtual cloud servers to cater all your cloud hosting needs.
Developing and deploying a scalable, globally-available web application on conventional data centers involves a lot of manual effort which results in lower efficiency. High peaks and oscillating traffic lead to either under-provisioning or over provisioning of resources. When a user visits your site, their request goes straight to your web server, but heavy static files are served from OSS, minimizing the load on your server.
When a user visits your site the CDN automatically fetches it from OSS. Dynamic content is served by a fleet of ECS instances running behind Server Load Balancer. The number of running ECS instances can grow and shrink with demand meaning you pay only for the resources you need: you no longer need to do capacity planning. Pressure on the RDS database is reduced using a read replica.
Larger sites need to defend against attack as well as guarantee performance. Traffic from users is first sent through Anti-DDoS where malicious traffic is scrubbed. Only real user traffic is sent on to the CDN. The CDN serves static content from the nearest edge location guaranteeing high speeds for users. If content is not found the CDN automatically retrieves it from OSS. Dynamic requests are sent on to the web servers.
