NOT true
Cloud Computing is a model for enabling ubiquitous access to shared pools of configurable resources (such as computer networks, servers, storage, applications and services), Cloud computing allows users and enterprises with various computing capabilities to store and process data either in a privately-owned cloud, or on a third-party server located in a data center - thus making data-accessing mechanisms more efficient and reliable. Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economy of scale, similar to a utility.

You would get a better and detailed research on the same here: The Real Difference Between Cloud Hosting and VPS Hosting
You are aware Cloud Hosting is still run on dedicated servers and some on VPS. as it is just a form of hosting just like Shared, Reseller etc.
you can run an Ecommerce store on a VPS without issue.

It is totally depend on your need .....
Web hosting is generally less efficient since it allocates a specified amount of computing resources to each client.
Cloud hosting tackles the increase differently and the website is hosted on a pool of unified computing resources.

Cloud hosing is one the types of web hosting services, through which your business gains web presence when your business site is hosted on server.
You can go with cloud hosting to secure your data, as it is the self-healing type of service.

Depends on your site & budget. For a new site better and cheaper is web hosting while cloud hosting can manage more powerful projects.

Totally depends on what the user is looking to achieve. There is no such comparison that can be done in terms of the hardware required as cloud is a different beast altogether and offers performance that is unmatched. As a starter, I would definitely recommend wordpress as it's the best bang for the buck.

Basically, both web hosting and cloud hosting is better, both have pros and cons and if you want to select any of them, then first define your requirements and choose one which highly meets your hosting needs.
But I highly prefer cloud hosting and the reason is its numerous benefits and among those benefits, the most important one is reliability for instance if a server fails one can easily switch to the other server. Also with cloud hosting, you can easily scale up/down your computing resources and you need to pay only for what you use. Altogether, there are various reason why users get more enticed towards cloud hosting in comparison to web hosting.

Totally depends on your needs and requirements. If you are running small or medium website, which require basic settings supported by shared servers - web hosting should be suitable for you. If you are working on a big project: a large number of visitors are planned and possible leap in the server load, but not sure how many resources will you require - it makes sense to pay attention to cloud hosting. You'll be able to create the server in the cloud due to your requirements - set the needed resources, OS, add drives, RAM etc. Moreover you'll be able to set auto-scalling - means that granted resources will be constantly changing automatically, based on website load and your settings; and pay for resource only you'll actually use.

Cloud hosting is whereby your website is hosted on a cluster of servers instead of having your site hosted on one server. In case of an issue, your site can be migrated to another server. Based on the cloud computing technology, it allows numerous machines to work in synchrony as one entity. The success of cloud hosting is guaranteed by the presence of many servers.
VS
Shared hosting refers to the hosting plan that has multiple websites hosted together and sharing resources on one server (disk space, storage, bandwidth and databases etc). Most, if not all the web hosting providers offer this hosting plan.

I would suggest you to go with the shared hosting service. You will need to confirm the exact traffic coming to your website and exact resources which are needed by your website.

If the shared hosting can fulfil all the requirements then be this it.

I would also see if the shared provider can host the requirements. Before just upgrading to a VPS/dedicated "just because it may be heavily".

Generally the more the plans costs and the fewer features and storage and bandwidth they provides. Likely means they got infrastructure and/or willing to welcome more resource intensive websites.

If you are single in this project I suggest to choose web hosting.

If you want to sell your services, and of course you will have advantage you could choose the cloud hosting ( which is more expensive ), but there you will do not have the same support as that from web hosting.
