    Cloud hosting has turned in to a marketing term.
    Many, many providers use it just to market the feature of "hourly billing".

    The reason few hosts offer true cloud is due to the fact it's very expensive.
    SAN with SSD's (usually) - not a cheap investment. Nodes set aside in the event of failure... Places like Amazon and Google offer true cloud hosting - but it can get very expensive, very quickly.

    At the end of the day - start small, and if you require cloud hosting in the future - go for it. If you're just starting out - you don't need it. Any reliable web host will be able to offer you a good amount of uptime (industry standard is 99.9%).

    Too true, I see many advertising Cloud yet it is a single server setup still!

    "Cloud Hosting" might be used from many irresponsible people as a phony, marketing term, but it actually has a technical explanation and it is "a Web hosting service provider from a computing infrastructure built with Cloud computing, where the processing nodes (servers) that offer CPU, RAM and do the processing operations are physically separated from the Storage Nodes (Storage Area Network or Storage Servers)".

    So, if any company claims to offer any kind of Cloud-based service they have an obligation to explain what kind of infrastructure they use to provide Cloud Hosting services.

    You your question @livsn85. When you Shared Hosting account or Virtual Server is hosted on any Cloud infrastructure, you can scale up processor (CPU) and memory (RAM) resources, without interruption of the services (or wit very minor interruption). There are also services like "High Availability" and "Fault-Tolerance", which ether minimize any possible service downtime or even unsure real 100% service uptime.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for clarifying the stuff. What my understanding is, Cloud is just like a VPS hosting. But, there is a difference between the two:

    VPS = A single dedicated machine (server) is divided into a few virtual servers.
    Cloud = An entire network of connected machines are divided into virtual servers. If one of the linked machines goes offline, the data will start serving using other machines which ensures the maximum uptime.

    In VPS, it's a bit difficult to scale up and down. While in the cloud, one can quickly scale up and down the resources. Another significant difference is the pricing model. In Cloud, users are charged for what they have consumed. Particularly, pay-as-you-go model with hourly rates.

    Please correct me if my understanding is wrong. Would appreciate your words.

    Depends on the provider. As I mentioned places like Digital Ocean, Vultr, and Linode are simply selling VPS branded as "cloud".
    In these cases (and more), it's a marketing term.

    The billing model you describe as "pay as you go" I've not encountered or know of any providers doing this. Hourly rates are not uncommon in a lot of providers.

    I won't say if what you're describing is correct or not - as the term "cloud" is open to interpretation.
