In my understanding, cloud hosting provides a setup in which your website stays on 100% of the time. In case of hardware failure and/or overload, a regular server will take the website down. With cloud infrastructure another node within the same setup is capable of kicking in when the initial node goes down.

Cloud hosting is based on the most innovative Cloud computing technologies that allow unlimited number of machines to act as one system. Other hosting solutions (shared or dedicated) depend on one machine only, while cloud hosting security is guaranteed by many servers.

Cloud hosting is a form of hosting that is based on cloud computing. What that means is that your hosting is based on several machines that could be scattered wherever but they all act as one single machine (cloud). Because of the set up of the cloud, your hosting is online 100%.

Cloud hosting is almost the same concept with VPS but the main deference is that VPS partitions a single server into semi-independent virtual servers. What that means though is that in the event that the main server goes down the VPS will also go down while in a cloud one machine going down will still leave you online being powered from the ones that are still online.

A Cloud Server provides the perfect middle ground between shared hosting and a dedicated server. With a Cloud Server, you can host your applications and websites on the internet with all the features and flexibility of a dedicated server with low cost budget as compare to dedicated server.

In hosting terms, cloud hosting is closer to VPS than dedicated servers.

The main advantage of cloud hosting over standard hosting is the guarantee of uptime. The rest is really not too far apart. Please also note that with a well setup grid hosting the uptime can also reach 100%

There are many different definitions for cloud hosting but basically cloud hosting is just a normal hosting that you host it in data center, thats why a lot of people will tell you they host their data in the cloud.

But in terms of technical and base on the latest trend of the technology, cloud hosting is a hosting package that setup using a clustered infrastructure wthl high availability features, and the fees will be base on "you pay what you use" calculation.

It would appear to me that you are describing Shared hosting and Grid hosting respectively NOT Cloud Hosting.

Please be careful of fake clouds these days like digitalocean or vultr ,as they label simple kvm vps as cloud which has only feature of hourly billing.

Its true that DigitalOcean may not meet some of the expectations of Cloud hosting BUT then there seems to be no single definition of what "cloud hosting" really is. If you look at it from the point of view of parallel processing work loads then their ability to only spin up the resources that a client needs will give them a right to calling themselves "CLOUD".

Cloud hosting is based on cloud computing. Now a days everyone expects 100% uptime from the hosting company. This kind of result is only possible using cloud hosting solution. With regular hosting there will be a sure downtime if there is any hardware issue or overload, but with cloud hosting if a particular node goes down, another node within the same setup switches and gives zero downtime. It can also be considered as a load balancer.

Yikes, just yikes... Quite a bit of misinformation in here.

I guess a bit more 'about me' is in order to qualify what I'm about to say

I have been involved in the hosting industry since 2002, in one form or another. From systems admin to support desk to (now) WHMCS, I've worn a ton of hats, including, at one point, working with an OnApp shop who shall remain nameless for a year and a half.

In case you're not familiar with it, Onapp is , it's only the largest cloud platform ever. I won't get into the competence of their support / staff / updates, because that's not the point here. The point is that OA is the beast to beat.

That said, on to the misinformation:

It seems that there's misconception that cloud means 100% uptime. This is absolutely, undeniably incorrect. While this can be close, it's not so much.
Case in point (something we saw a lot):
If the network your hypervisors are connected to is down, guess what? You're down.
The solution:
Multiple networks

Case in point
If the software solution you're using loads down the hypervisor? Guess what? You're down
The solution:
Load balancing hypervisors, making sure that the stripes are all correctly handled and off on other hv's

Case in point
If the hypervisor itself goes down, you're not terribly likely to get that backup working quickly.

Case in point
If the controller server goes down (say, for example OA staff logs in and screws things up, which they have a habit of doing), you're essentially screwed.

The point here? Cloud is not always 100%. yes, it may be close to it, but if you look at the infrastructure of most of these 'cloud' companies, you'd be surprised at how fallible, how vulnerable they really are. With most, all it would take would be one tiny little pindrop to set off a chain reaction so nasty, so ugly that it would be devastating.
