It just depends on your specifics needs, the one VPS is a virtual server, the other one is a cloud service. Just focus on the solution features if it is suitable for your site or satisfy your requirement.

Google Cloud provides enterprise-class support for Windows workloads running on GCP.
you can use it easily.

VPS is generally more directly defined, whereas cloud can be defined differently depending upon who's using the term.

In my opinion, right now there is a good choice in a variety of hosting for different purposes. For gaming, working, and studying. Unfortunately, I am not able to advise you of free hosting, because usually, I use paid ones from time to time. Like the [MOD NOTE: URL snipped] with their cloud server. Even better than google as some people mentioned above.

Again, it depends on your purposes.

Cloud is the best, not that we are biased or anything. ;)

Think of a cloud VM as a VPS on steroids, self healing, indestructible, in theory unless the entire data center goes down your cloud based VM will still be up and running, a CPU core crashes... your are good, an entire CPU, yup... a hard drive... still good to go. Even several machines that make up the cloud can go down and your virtual machine will still be running.

Add a second cloud VM and mirror your content and you have a 100% uptime high availability environment.

I think there is a lot of misunderstanding of VPS and Cloud.

All our equipment is cloud based, whether you take shared hosting, reseller hosting or an VPS.

When you get a cloud VPS, the storage is on an array with multiple copies and the CPU and memory exists on a node, which mounts the disk-space from the array.
Should the node fail, another node will mount the array and serve the content so the downtime will typically be less than 2 minutes while the detection and mitigation of the crash happens.

True, we can provide "almost" unlimited storage, but you have to ay for that and let us know before you need it. (Maybe not unlimited, but very extensive).

But why even have a VPS. If you have a VPS, then you need a control panel license, an r1Soft license and all of the plugin licenses.

Our large shared and reseller platforms use cloud linux and control the amount of resource you get just like a vps. Every user gets their own virtual filesystem, so no cross link hacking. Their own IP, so no blacklisting due to bad neighbours. Each account has CPU, Memory, I/O, IOPs and bandwidth limits, so you know that other accounts on the server will not take you down. You get the VPS experience without the cost, and it's all managed for you.

VPS Hosting is generally less efficient since it allocates a specified amount of computing resources to each client. Hence, if the requirement increases, the system would not be able to handle the additional inflow. It will simply crash. The same would be the case if the server malfunctions.

Cloud Hosting, on the other hand, tackles the increase differently. Under the cloud environment, the website is hosted on a pool of unified computing resources. This simply means that if one server is reaching its optimum level, then a second server is ready to function. Similarly, if a server fails, the website will still be running as other servers will continue to serve the incoming traffic.

So Cloud Hosting Is the Best Option
Both are more effective, but nowadays the majority of men choose a cloud server because it has the highest uptime and 20 x faster speed.
Which Hosting Services are Best? VPS or Cloud?
If you want to get things up and running as quickly as possible and don't care about scaling, a virtual private server (VPS) can be an excellent place to begin. If, on the other hand, you require a hosting configuration that is very adaptable in addition to having a high level of site speed and storage space, then you should investigate cloud hosting environments.

Cloud hosting is more expensive than virtual private server (VPS) hosting due to cloud hosting's infinite resources and high scalability. Despite this, it offers an outstanding return on your investment and is, on average, far more cost-effective than a dedicated server. As a result of the scalability choices, the monthly prices associated with cloud hosting are less predictable than those associated with VPS hosting.

There are three types of Web Hosting Solutions that are very famous.
Shared Hosting- it is the cheapest Web hosting solution. Shared Hosting is a web hosting solution where multiple business owner host websites and share resources with each other. no one has control over the server resources.

VPS Hosting- it works the same Shared hosting but offers dedicated Server resources to the users. the virtual physical server is separated into various users and every user gets devoted server resources. it offers better performance and security than shared hosting.

Dedicated Server- it is the most expensive and best web hosting solution you can get. it offers ultimate performance and security. and it can handle millions of traffic.

Both VPS (Virtual Private Server) and Cloud hosting solutions offer a high level of flexibility and scalability, but they have different characteristics and are best suited for different types of applications and usage scenarios.

A VPS is a virtualized environment that runs on a dedicated server. It is a single-tenant environment, which means that the resources of the server are dedicated to a single customer. VPS provides users with root access to the operating system, which allows them to install custom software and configure the server as they see fit. VPS is best suited for applications that require a high level of control over the server environment, such as custom software development, testing, and staging environments.

On the other hand, Cloud hosting is a multi-tenant environment that runs on a shared infrastructure. This means that the resources of the server are shared among multiple customers. Cloud hosting solutions are typically managed by the provider, which means that the customer does not have root access to the operating system. Cloud hosting is best suited for applications that require a high level of scalability, such as web applications and online services that need to be able to handle a large number of users and transactions.

In summary, VPS is a good choice for users that need more control over the server environment and require a more predictable performance, while cloud hosting is best suited for users that require a high level of scalability and can tolerate some variability in performance.

It is also worth noting that many hosting providers offer a hybrid of these two solutions, known as Cloud VPS, which allows having the best of both worlds, being able to have control of a VPS, and the scalability of the cloud.
