Hi,
I am just wondering what are main differences between cloud hosting & web hosting? and why cloud hosting costs more than web hosting?

Thank You

Usually cloud hosting refers to a system of multiple redundant systems that form a cloud. With this type of hosting if there is hardware failure your site/data is not lost and won't go down. This is why it costs more...

Web hosting if you are referring to just regular shared hosting, is a server that is "shared" among many websites. One server may server upwards of 500-1000 different websites. If this server has a hardware issue all sites being served from it go offline. It is much cheaper because the cost of the server is covered by the amount of sites being served.

Cloud is an off-premise form of computing that stores data on the Internet, whereas a data center on-premise hardware that stores data within an organization's local network.
Cloud services are outsourced to third-party cloud providers who perform all updates and ongoing maintenance, data centers are typically run by an in-house IT department.

in normal hosting if VPS hardware crash you will not recover the data but in cloud hosting in case of hardware crash your data will move to other cloud safely .

There is an older thread here with alot of insights. I also wrote an article in our Knowledgebase many years ago but am not sure if sharing the link wouldn't violate the terms so I have refrained from it.

you can perform this on a standard cPanel server using the cluster and syncing all servers together
