My views, cloud hosting is way way better than normal hosting, because it is hosted at different servers and website do not have any downtime.

Cloud hosting far more Superior and provides true HA I would recommend cloud hosting for a business site, a site that you depend on income from, for a personal site then regular hosting would be fine, I would not care if my personal blog was down, I would if my business site was.

As stated above, the best choice in terms of reliability would be cloud hosting. Of course you've got to think that some things aren't allowed on cloud servers that are usually allowed on regular hosting servers (software wise). I've not messed with cloud hosting much, however I've experienced this first hand when purchasing hosting from clouds.

I must say, that cloud hosting has been a big hit for me, I'm just not too fond of having my files on multiple servers. If I were to go for dependability however, I'd choose cloud.

It depends on what you need to do. If you need more resources and generate much traffic, it is better to use the cloud service.

As compared to normal hosting, cloud hosting is more secure and flexible.

Previously cloud was suitable for only those customers who have more budget, but now a days it is suitable for all types of users.

How come? What makes any Cloud instance more secure in comparison with any "traditional" IT hosting environment.

Cloud hosting is much better than normal hosting. It is more secure and flexible. Our shared hosting uses a cloud infrastructure. Each aspect of the service (emails, web storage, databases) is handled by a separate cluster of servers.

Customers accounts are using multiple servers at once, and this makes the service more reliable, and the upgrades easier, as the hosting can be scaled a lot.

People look for cloud hosting as it is "modern" and sort of "the new thing in web hosting". Customer know that a shared hosting account can suffer from overselling or servers being hacked and they believe going with a cloud will give them better uptime and reliability.

Would you rather have 6 items or a half dozen

It seems like cloud hosting is the way to go, with increased reliability, scalability, performance, energy efficiency, resource efficiency and the independence of hardware.
