Cloud hosting means any of the websites hosted on a hosting cloud or cloud based hosting should have the potential to spread its computing needs across the entire cloud.While VPS means VPS is much the same level with dedicated server, so you can create reseller accounts through this.They both have their own advantages.You will get brief information from any reputed search engine.

VPS = Virtual Private Server which is a mechanism to slice a physical server into virtual chunks (thinking it as slices of the physical computing resources such as RAM and CPU time) that each run and respond as if it's a separate server.

Cloud hosting is an emerging technology that enables the pooling of large number of separate physical computers / servers / computing devices together so that they act like one, and websites or resource consumers (active processes, user applications) pull resources for computing from the pool as a whole.
VPS requires the hosting provider to allocate your server; with cloud hosting you do it yourself using their control panel or API and you're up in minutes.  VPS is just regular web hosting; cloud hosting is IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service). Another difference that comes out of this is that massive server Deployments are much more common and easier to run through cloud hosting.

Cloud hosting and VPS hosting both are different from each others. VPS hosting is as same as dedicated server that allow you to use server to host your site and not share with others. It's also allow you to create reseller account. It's provide good security for hosting your site and its also provide good web space. Cloud hosting is very flexible hosting and it's provide very cheap price to host your site. It is use to host any type of website.

Scale is the most significant distinction between the two server environments. A VPS server can be a wonderful starting point if you're looking to launch as soon as possible and don't care about scale. A cloud hosting environment, on the other hand, is worth considering if you require a flexible hosting setup as well as a high level of site performance and storage.

Cloud hosting gives you access to a nearly limitless amount of server resources. Cloud hosting can be the ideal choice for sites with fluctuating traffic levels or sites that are rapidly scaling. From resource consumption to pricing, cloud hosting provides you with a lot of server power and complete flexibility.

VPS hosting is a wonderful option for folks who just want to build a website but have outgrown the limitations of shared hosting. A VPS is powerful and does increase performance, making it an excellent alternative for any company that requires (and appreciates) server stability.

For optimum scalability and high availability, a VPS is housed on a single physical server, whereas a cloud server is hosted on a virtual partition made up of numerous actual servers. For a visual demonstration of why the multiple server infrastructure is a differentiator.

Cloud server includes several physical servers that are interconnected, but virtual hosting is hosted on one physical server. If you need help with choosing, you can contact the hosting company for advice. For example, HostPro. The company can help you choose the right plan and managed hosting provides high quality technical support.

VPS is Virtual private service, It is one of the most popular hosting service that you can choose for your Website. It uses virtualization technology to provide you with dedicated (private) resources on a server with multiple users. VPS hosting gives you access to guaranteed resources and full control without having to run your own server. It’s an excellent solution for medium to high traffic, resource-heavy, and e-commerce websites. However, businesses who expect rapid growth can also benefit from the stability of the service. If you want a reliable, business-scale hosting environment at a friendly price, it’s definitely worth considering VPS hosting for your website.

In Contrast, Cloud web hosting uses a virtual network of cloud servers to host a single site. It is different from traditional hosting, which stores one or multiple sites on a single server. The primary benefit of cloud hosting is reliability. When one cloud server is down, other servers can take its place to keep the website online. It is also less prone to hardware failure, and webmasters can scale their hosting resources as needed to anticipate traffic spikes.
