Hello everyone,
I am looking for dedicated resources for a heavy traffic website. The website contains some of the confidential information during the transaction process, so I am confused about which hosting to choose?
Cloud server or Dedicated server.

Hey,
Actually, in both Cloud server and Dedicated server, you will get the separate resources for your use only.
Difference between them is :
(i) Dedicated servers - Dedicated Server is a physical that is purchased or rented entirely for your business requirements. A dedicated server is mainly used by large organizations that provide a high level of security for your data and provides a high demand for server capacity.

(ii) Cloud servers - Cloud server is the same as a dedicated server where you get your own resources and it also provides you the high level of data security. The difference in cloud server is that instead of storing your data on any physical server, it gets stored on 'virtual' servers, and the cluster of such servers is called as a cloud. In the cloud server, you can ask the resources whenever there is a requirement for them.

With the increasing demand for dedicated servers, the web hosting industry is doing great in the market. But, still, large organizations look for cloud server hosting to manage their online business.

Cloud servers - are more cost-effective that do not need any prior investment to purchase the plans and maintain the infrastructure.
Cloud is more reliable as it runs on multiple servers so that even if one component fails to work, you will get the services from other components without losing your data.

Dedicated servers - they are the physical servers and you get the entire server for your hosting requirements. You have the full control over your server plus the experts from your hosting provider will help you to troubleshoot your issues.
