    Cloud hosting is a type of hosting that depends on cloud computing. This means you’re hosting depends on a few machines that could be scattered wherever however they all go about as one single machine (cloud). In view of the setup of the cloud, you're hosting is online 100%. Very few agencies offer to managed cloud hosting solutions.

    It is a group of computers. We can also say a fail-over cluster. If any server in which your website is hosted goes down, the another server will serve your site. Cloud hosting provides almost 100% hardware uptime because of such fail over mechanism.

    to be simple traditional hosting uses one location for storing files where cloud uses multiple locations to store the data

    in this way the downtime is less and the sites are usually faster as they are retrieved from different sources

    Basically unlike a Dedicated Server where the resources available are fixed in terms of hardware availability, with Cloud Hosting, you get the flexibility to scale as needed, since the amount of resources in the “cloud” is comprised from a pool of servers.


    However whether there is performance benefits or not actually depends on the application being run. It also isn’t true that the websites are going to load faster because they are being retrieved from multiple locations, etc… that is what a Content Delivery Network (CDN) does, which is completely different from the concept of Cloud Hosting.


    If anything I’d say Cloud Hosting isn’t required for most consumers who are just looking to run a simple or even moderately large website - current hosting solutions take care of those requirements extremely adequately. Most people are just jumping onto the bandwagon because of the amount of publicity that Cloud Hosting has received due to heavy advertising by major Cloud providers.

    Cloud hosting are hosting services that are provided to customers via multiple connected servers that comprise a cloud. Cloud hosting model is cheaper alternative to the traditional dedicated server.
