One of the differences between cloud hosting and regular hosting is billing based on the actual consumption of resources. Therefore, if the load grows, hosting does not limit it, but increases it in order to maintain the given performance. And each resource has its price - CPU, memory, disk operations and others. On the other hand, if the load does not grow, then you pay quite a bit for the resource (in fact, if there is no traffic, then only for data storage). This is for the 'proper' cloud hosting. Question: will I be able to check the load on my site and the number (visually) of the resources connected for its operation? ???

Well, in general, the work of renting cloud hosting works a little differently. It is true that when there are not enough resources, a shared server gives you additional power - RAM and CPU, but there is one important point. When signing a lease, you, as a tenant, must set the minimum and maximum parameters, of course there are hostings that do not have the "maximum parameters" parameter, but there are not so many of them.
The answer to the question is partly yes. Usually, in the control panel (admin panel), you can see the current load and connected modules, you can also view the active server uptime and the price you will need to pay.

General HTTP verification. If there are problems with the site, the service will send a message in SMS, Hangouts, Skype, Slack, Telegram.
Ping check using ICMP protocol: the route of the request from the user to the server, all communication nodes. This will help eliminate a local problem that prevents the site from loading.
