Want to run my website in Cloud Hosting, Is there any data breach while doing this?

I would agree with most of the answers on this forum which is why you'll need to ask why do you need cloud in the first place. Usually, enterprises or business websites that need quick scaling or application-based environments go for the cloud. Not that you cannot get cloud hosting otherwise, sure you can.

But to choose a cloud hosting provider, you need to list down your hosting requirements first and then choose a provider. For instance, one of my clients had a requirement of more than 200k users per month with consistent availability across 5 countries, I had to suggest a provider who gave a content delivery network, like ResellerClub for their plans suited their budget.

Ideally list down your requirements, maybe look at how people here narrow down what they want and then take suggestions. That should be the best way forward.

Most of the data-breaches on the internet happen on application level.
It doesn't really matter whether you host your application on a VPS, Cloud or Dedicated Server, they all come with almost the same level of security - you can improve that by hardening your software environment - and it is programmer's job to write code in a secure way.
If your code isn't good, no matter how much secure the hosting is, there will be data breaches.

To protect yourself from data leakage, first of all you need to think about the password. In no case do not make a password that means significant dates in your life. Cybercriminals crĐ°ck such passwords very easily. The password must necessarily contain such a sequence of letters and numbers that the password is very complex.

I will also advise you to use a reliable encryption system and use proven means of protection: systems against data leaks and antiviruses. Do not spare money on a good antivirus.

At the moment, cloud hosting has gained popularity. There are a lot of suppliers, there are a lot of offers on the market. I think that you should choose among those who offer the best protection.

Make sure it has fully managed servers which really indicates that you can set up and manage the infrastructure and server software. Also the support must be online like 24/7

What is the difference between cloud hosting and other types? Only greater flexibility - the site, like any data arrays, is hosted in a virtual space located in a cluster consisting of physical servers. Here, an additional "bonus" is fast scalability, for example, when the load on a regular server increases dramatically. A data leak has the same chance of being in the cloud... :(

Before buying a VPS, contact technical support, ask about data protection. Learn more about scalability if your project grows. Also i recommend to find out about all sorts of hidden fees that may not be reported to the client in advance.
