    Hello,

    In web hosting your website remains on one server and on shared environment whereas in cloud hosting your website is present on cloud means it can be access from many locations all over the world.

    Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources instead of having local servers or personal equipment to handle applications.
    Web hosting is the business of providing server space, web services and file maintenance for websites controlled by companies or individuals.

    Most internet users cannot tell the difference between web hosting and cloud computing. These two terms are similar but their differences have not always been clear.

    What is web hosting?

    Web hosting is the business of providing server space, web services and file maintenance for websites controlled by companies or individuals that do not have their own web servers.

    There are different types of web hosting:

    Shared Hosting/virtual hosting/mass hosting

    Your content and applications are uploaded into a server which is then shared with other customers who also use the web host. The web host owns the equipment and the server and they have technicians who monitor and manage the servers.

    Dedicated hosting

    Dedicated hosting is specialised hosting. It is much more sophisticated and the most popular type of hosting. With dedicated hosting, you can rent an entire server for yourself and you can gain access to all the web host provider´┐Żs resources to host one or more websites. With dedicated hosting, either you or your web host provider owns the equipment.

    Root server hosting/semi-managed hosting

    This is a form of dedicated hosting. Root server hosting gives uninterrupted internet connectivity. It is flexible in that, you can choose hardware specifications and operations systems that are best suited to your needs.

    Reseller hosting

    Reseller hosting is the best type of hosting for entrepreneurs and businesses who wish to host on behalf of their own clients. You can have a contract with a web hosting provider and then sell their services under your own brand.

    What is cloud computing?

    Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on sharing computing resources instead of having local servers or personal devices to handle applications.

    As with web hosting, there are also different types of cloud computing and these are the most common:

    Software as a Service (SaaS)

    SaaS is the most popular and widely used form of cloud computing. It provides all the functions of a complicated traditional application. But instead of making use of a locally installed application, these functions are provided through a web browser.

    Platform as a Service

    This type of cloud computing provides virtualized servers where users can run existing applications or develop new ones without worrying about the maintenance of the operating systems, server hardware, computing capacity or load balancing.

    Infrastructure as a Service

    This form of cloud computing provides virtualized servers, networks, storage and systems software designed to add to or replace the functions of an entire data center.

    Cloud computing and Web hosting can seem similar because these two types of services can have very similar kinds of setups and deliver a lot of the same results. However, there are some critical differences between cloud computing and Web hosting services that have to do with the technical definition of each.

    Web hosting is simply the process of offering remote location and maintenance for files and server space used to support Web projects. Conventional kinds of Web hosting include services where individual users can build and store small websites with a Web hosting provider, and enterprise Web hosting, where businesses enter into contracts with third-parties like Internet Service Providers to host their sites.

    A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. and Cloud hosting is an alternative to hosting websites on single servers (either dedicated or shared servers) and can be considered as an extension of the concept of clustered hosting where websites are hosted on multiple servers.

    shared hosting gets an edge over cloud hosting when it comes to pricing and bonuses. It’s a perfect plan for those on a budget or small business owners because they can have access to all the basic features they need to get started and do so affordably.

    Cloud hosting, on the other hand, takes the crown when it comes to security, uptime, speed, performance, and uptime. All the features packed into this plan making it ideal for medium to large sized business or generally those websites that tend to receive huge traffic.
