Cloud allocating resources like CPU, memory, storage, etc. When you host your website on the cloud, then the website uses virtual resources of the servers cluster for its requirement.
With the help of cloud hosting, the peak load (without any bandwidth issue) of the website can be managed conveniently. Because in this case, the other server of the cluster can offer additional resources to that server.
