Many web hosts will require that you have and own your domain name. The hosted computers called “servers” is where your hosted website is stored. A cloud website uses a combination of multiple servers, as mentioned, for their hosting purposes. The “Cluster of Servers” is simply referred to as “The Cloud”.
