Cloud hosting is growing, but not as well as people think.

a lot of people jumped on the "Cloud Hosting" bandwagon, only to be disappointed. Cloud hosting can come at a high price, and still give poor results. Plus there are a lot of providers that use the "Cloud" name as a marketing gimmick when really it is only traditional hosting. This has caused a lot of consumers to stay away from "Cloud" hosting.

The same goes for VPS & Dedicated servers. I have seen dedicated servers being sold for as low as $20/month. That price, even (especially) on a older model server will not even pay for the power & bandwidth it consumes or the cooling power it takes to keep it cool. Providers that offer services at the low rates do not stay in business very long, or if they do, that typically provide poor support and/or uptime.

Most business people know that "You get what you pay for". If you want a cheap price, your likely to get a cheap service!

For instance, we have never tried to be competitive on price. Our servers cost more then many providers (but still less then some), but we spend a lot of money on competent support staff, redundant systems, and a optimized collapsible core network.

Often times, a Shared/reseller plan from a quality provider, is still far better then a VPS or dedicated from a cheap provider!!

Keep in mind also, the majority of the population does not need, want, or know what to do with a VPS/Dedicated. Although they can give you more resources, they are more difficult to manage. Shared & Reseller plans are still more popular then anything else!

I don't know why Cloud hosting offered higher price than VPS or dedicated servers at same features. Does it have better uptime, as I read, it always is 100% uptime?

That is what a lot of people think and a lot of companies hope for, but that is not always the case.

True cloud hosting has a lot of redundancy built in. Completes servers can go offline without services being interrupted, but things can still go wrong. Even Amazon AWS has experienced downtime.

You also have to be careful because a lot of companies load cPanel on a single dedicated server and call it cloud hosting when really, it will have no better uptime then traditional hosting.

It depends do you have the servers to support it?
also in regards to what RDO Servers said, cheap services do not mean going out business or having bad support, i completely disagree. We have great support with VERY high customer satisfaction but at the same time our reseller and shared plans are very cheap and affordable.
Now yes we will be rising the price of our reseller plan because it is too cheap and it was for a limited offer but still that is part of the business.

Luxin, please don't take offense to my comments. I mentioned providers offering dedicated servers for at or below cost which is simply not a sustainable business model. My comments were not directed at low priced shared or reseller accounts.
I agree with RDO Servers but also agree with Luxin Host's opinion.

I tried over more shared and VPS hosting companies but some are offered high price but they have good support and high quality, but some with high price but bad support and provided low quality service.

I tried some cheap VPS hosting companies but their services are really good, even I don't have any thing to complain about their support/services. It depends on each web hosting company. I would recommend to check their service first before purchasing, at least some weeks or 1 month.
