    Cloud simply means that there is no compromise in security, performance, redundancy, availability and at the same time it is the most cost-effective solution.

    A cloud-hosted website is opearting on multiple connected servers. Instead of limited to a single server like what we have in traditional hosting services (dedicated/shared hosting), the website now has the access to multiple servers. Virtually, the processing power is unlimited as you can always add a new server and scale up.

    Whereas, a dedicated hosting has only one dedicated server managing everything.

    Cloud hosting benefits the users from various angles. It’s scalability and cost efficient is the commonly known advantages.

    As the technology is highly scalable (load balancing, hardware upgrades, etc), website expansion can be done with minimum limitations. Think about the hassle of migrating your website from a shared server to a dedicated server; think about server crash when your website experienced a sudden surge – all these problem can be avoided easily by switching to cloud hosting.

    Cost is another huge plus if you need a lot of processing power. Cloud hosting companies charge their users based on the quantity of computing power consumed. It’s like your electricity and water supply bills – it’s pay-per-use thus gone are the days where you need to reserve massive server powers to avoid website crash from sudden traffic surge.

    Hello,

    Basically cloud hosting will offer 100% uptime at low cost, where you have to pay for resources your site requires and you order for. Its much of midway for high performance at low cost for you site. For much technical information on cloud you can review : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_computing

    Where as in dedicated server the hardware resources are fixed and cannot be increased or reduced at any given time , like you can do it on cloud server.

    would like to add that cloud-based Web Servers are deployed efficiently minimizing your server setup time.

    The main difference between cloud hosting and dedicated hosting is the cost effectiveness involved. In case of dedicated server hosting, you get access to a wide range of resources and you also have to pay for all of them whether or not you use them. However in case of cloud hosting, you have the access to various resources but you only have to pay for the resources that you have used.

    Cloud hosting is now applicable to the organizations of all sizes.. With cloud hosting payment can be made only for the resources that are used but with dedicated servers you are in need to pay for all the resources that are provided.. Cloud hosting would give you a better solution with higher quality and flexibility than the dedicated servers..

    One of the unique features of VPS Hosting is its capability to offer a dedicated like environment to users. On the other hand the cloud hosting is one new solution that is comparatively pretty new to the hosting industry. A Cloud hosting is basically a cluster of multiple servers, and the computing resources of these servers are shared between each other.

    The advantage of cloud hosting is that you can use the bandwidth you need rather than paying for a certain amount. With dedicated hosting you will be paying for a specific amount whether you use it or not and you can't exceed this. With cloud hosting you can have more when required and only pay for what you are using.

    Cloud hosting is better for websites whose traffic varies a lot.

    There are advantages at both types of service, much depends on you particular needs.

    May recommend hostv.com as the provider for quality dedicated hosting.

    cloud testing is best because it divides all data into different different servers and decrease load time of website. also sequare your data.

    Cloud hosting offers great deal of flexibility and reliability and it works on the basics of cloud computing. It uses scaling technique to expand itself when needed. whereas dedicated servers have fixed space and bandwidth.
