I came across Stratus4.com web site and recognized that they offer cloud hosting solutions - this attracted me. What privileges will I have with cloud hosting?

The biggest advantage you get with cloud hosting is scalability and performance. Server resources on cloud are scalable which means you can use more resources as your traffic increases. This option is available in traditional hosting services. One of the disadvantage of cloud hosting is that deploying application on it is difficult. You need to have sysadmin experience go through a long and complicated process. However, this is not really a issue if you are deploying on cloud using a managed hosting platform, like Cloudways. With managed hosting, you get one click installation feature and managed software and configuration of other things, so you don't have to do it all manually.
To be honest, I am trying to understand what cloud hosting is. From what I understand, the website host provider has a server that runs 24/7 where your website is hosted. But in cloud hosting, I don’t see any difference at all since the cloud host also has a server 24/7 where the website is hosted. Practically, it’s the same to me. I hope someone can clarify this assumption of mine because I have a feeling that I am wrong.
