    What are your thoughts on cloud hosting? Do you prefer it?

    Does cloud hosting make your website run faster? What are the advantages compared to the regular web hosting? if you've had any experience with it, would appreciate your feedback
    many thanks

    Technically, everything online is in the "cloud". :)

    Cloud hosting, as opposed to managed hosting, usually means that you will be the sysadmin and thus responsible for all the services. If you have the skills to keep both the server running, your site could be faster because not only are you not in a shared environment, but you have total control over the servers memory allocation, etc.

    Real cloud definition imo is High Availability systems, ie when your server crash the node transfers you to a secondary server seamlessly without downtime.
    Cloud for most host is just a marketing term.

    I've found that running your site with Cloud Hosting does speed up things. However, it tends to have more down time than regular hosting. Just my personal experience with it.

    Then your host do something wrong. Real cloud is not faster, but its more reliable in case of server failure.
    Your host probably use the cloud term for marketing, as everything on internet is considered cloud nowadays.
