VPS or Cloud Hosting
I think VPS hosting is awesome.Many people are choosing other hosting options like shared hosting because maybe you have minimal traffic on your website.What about when your traffic increases and you have to start thinking of changing your hosting plan?Then what?I think using VPS is like carrying a jacket everyday to work in your briefcase.In case it rains,you don't have to get wet.In case it doesn't,oh well you don't lose anything.Compare this with cloud hosting,kindly give me your thoughts.

Cloud hosting -
Cloud hosting service will have the on demand resource allocation. There is harder security setup on the cloud hosting service.
Main principle of cloud hosting is divide as per the need. Cloud used to distribute the required resources on multiple servers as used them as per the requirement. There are multiple servers work together. If one server fails then other will start loading the same task without any delay. Cloud is nothing but the one larger storage space and processor.
Here are the some of the advantages of cloud hosting for you -
1. Accessibility - Main advantage of cloud hosting is that the files are accessible anywhere and anytime. You can access the files when you would like to access without matter of place.
2. Backup facility - Cloud hosting service always have the copy of your data on the the server. So in the case of disaster, you will have the copy of data even if the data on the main server get deleted or lost.
3. Low cost solution - You will need to pay just the amount for the storage which you are actually using.
4. Secure service - You don't have to worry about the security. Cloud hosting provider will have the best infrastructure on which you don't need to worry about the security , they have their setup for security.
5. High degree of uptime
VPS hosting is best for the low budget and small hosting service. Maintenance cost is also low and VPS are easy to secure.
VPS is your own server with root access. You can host anything on it as it's your server. You can have any applications, software. You will have the bandwidth, resources, inode only for your service, it won't get shared with any other server. You will get dedicated resources for your service on VPS. You can manage the server in your way.
Server will have good up-time and security measures if you will manage it from your end as there won't be interfere of other service. You will have root SSH access too.

- Any file hosted on a web server (shared, cloud, vps or dedicated) is accessable globally.
- All hosting companies should provide a backup solution. However, you should also keep your own backups of important data.
- Cloud hosting is no more secure then traditional shared web hosting.
Most importantly, "Cloud" is probably the most overused maketing term in the industry. Just because a provider say "cloud", does not bean you should assume any difference over a traditional cPanel account!█ █ RDO Servers - Shared Hosting, Resellers, VPS, Dedicated Servers & Clusters

VPS referes to a virtual private server hosted on a stand-alone physical server. Cloud Server refers to a virtual server hosted on a clustered (Cloud) computing infrastructure. Cloud servers come with scalability and other services such as Load balancing, Hight Availability (HA) / Failover and Fault-Tolerance (on any level). A VPS hosted on a stand-alone server can go down at any time due to load on the VPS itself or on the underlying physical machine. On the Cloud an interruption of the service could happen on the Cloud Server (Cloud VM or Cloud VPS) itself if it does not use HA or Fault-Tolerance, but not on the underlying infrastructure.
I hope that this helps!

If you’re looking to launch as quickly as possible and don’t care about scale, then a VPS server can be a great starting point.
However, if you demand a flexible hosting setup and a high level of site performance and storage then it’s worth checking out a cloud hosting environment.

I recommend going with a VPS unless you can find a TRUE cloud vps which is rare these day. Cloud is supposed to be if your vps goes down another vps kicks in with a copy so you aren't down. Most webhosts these day say it's cloud but it's not.

For me I prefer VPS because a major difference between a VPS and a private cloud is the LOCATION of the hardware. A Virtual Private Server(VPS) is generally hosted at an off-site, third-party web hosting provider. Unlike the clouds use hardware that is solely for the use of that particular cloud and is not shared with other users.
That's my own opinion and maybe some of you prefer Clouds, hope it helps
