What is the best hosting Type or package for a PHP based website

Should we go for Cloud hosting or VPS hosting?

Cloud hosting and vps hosting are two different things. In both options you are using a vps. The difference is in whether the vps is hosted from a single massive system or multiple smaller systems as a cluster.

Which one you pick doesn't matter. Pick whichever one is more affordable and make your app system agnostic by using programming best practices. Then later, if your server is struggling to keep up you can increase the server or use more dedicated hardware/software to distribute load to your own cloud.

Edit: I found a good definition of both:

VPS = Virtual Private Server which is a mechanism to slice a physical server into virtual chunks (thinking it as slices of the physical computing resources such as RAM and CPU time) that each run and respond as if it's a separate server.

Cloud hosting is an emerging technology that enables the pooling of large number of separate physical computers / servers / computing devices together so that they act like one, and websites or resource consumers (active processes, user applications) pull resources for computing from the pool as a whole.

Using that definition, a cloud, acting like one massive computer from several smaller computers clustered together, can be split into several smaller vps'. This is how the large hosting services like amazon work.

Go for the Virtual server we are using it for our services from last one year it is fast and reliable and cheap, But it's user choice and depends upon your services and business requirements so analyze that and decide.
