The main difference of cloud servers is flexibility and configuration, as they can provide the exact level of control, security, and performance the user is after.
And the Shared hosting servers happen to have a similar degree of flexibility, but instead of focusing on your needs, they will involve you in a shared virtualized environment where many other users are waiting to be served.

On cloud hosting, you have complete freedom to scale the resources on demand, you don’t require to switch to VPS or dedicated servers whereas, with shared hosting, you have to switch your service once your website is grown to the certain level of popularity.

Not only that,cloud servers are equipped with failover protection to efficiently handle the failure of power or hard drive crashes.Traditional shared servers have no failover protection which results in greater downtime of maintenance.

Cloud Hosting gives you extra resources should you need them in comparison to Shared Hosting. Cloud Hosting would also be used for sites which have a sudden spike in traffic so the resources are there should you need them.

Shared hosting is the most popular hosting solution that can suit even the tightest budget. But using a shared hosting solution also means that the user has to share the server resources with other users. If you are hosting your website within a shared hosting service, this means all applications and data resources being used by your account, is also being shared with many other users on one server.

The cloud hosting environment is a dedicated hosting service that allows you to manage and maintain your website with a dedicated server. This means that all resources allocated to you at the time of creation of your server will be used by you and you alone.

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. Shared hosting requires a dedicated web server provided by the web hosting provider.

**Cloud hosting **is where 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.

Shared hosting is the most popular hosting solution that can suit even the most tight budget. But using a shared hosting solution also means that the user has to share the server resources with other users. If you are hosting your website with in an shared hosting service, this means all applications and data resources being used by your account, is also being shared with many other users on one server. Your website will share the same server resources as all other websites on the server such as CPU, Memory, disk space, bandwidth etc. The servers running shared hosting accounts are almost always fully loaded. If one website overloads the server, all users will suffer from low speed, limited disk space, memory issues, and/or downtime.

On the cloud, however, you will not have to worry about these issues. The cloud hosting environment is a dedicated hosting service that allows you to manage and maintain your website with in a server that is only dedicated to you. So this means that all resources allocated at the time of creation of your server that become available, are for you to use and you alone.
