Cloud hosting instead of traditional hosting

Suppose I have a certain web site implemented on ASP.NET . The site is a classic average catalog with the number of elements in it about ≈ 15000-18000. There are functions such as search, filtering by parameters, registration / authorization, admin panel, user's personal account, adding/editing your catalog items.
Previously, I would not have thought about using cloud hosting. Now cloud technologies, apparently, have become mainstream and are already heard by many.

And yet, does it make sense to host a web site not on the traditional web hosting, but on the cloud hosting?
What are the worthwhile advantages of using cloud web hosting in the medium and long term for this kind of sites?


What for?

  Regular web hosting gives you fixed resources for a fixed fee.
  Cloud - floating resources for a floating fee.
  There is also an intermediate option that calls itself cloud, but works like the first one.

The most reasonable argument is a gradual increase in the load.
You pay more and more as your system grows.
It is advisable if we are talking about projects with web hosting for $KK per month.

Your tasks (if the engine is written correctly) are perfectly solved by hosting for $10 per month. Not cloudy.


If you have adequate experience using regular hosting with this project, then I doubt that you will be better off "on the cloud". As far as I know, for a project like yours, VPS hosting with a moderate fee is best. The cloud may be needed only in case of a significant expansion of the audience, i.e. users, in general - the load on the server. If this is not expected in the near future, then, as they say, why pay more? ::)
