Grid hosting was basically used during older times, it also includes Virtualization but its old.

Cloud is newer and its better and allow scalable use of resources.

When people talk about grid hosting, they usually mean clustering several dedicated to one cluster computer which is then able to run certain tasks. While cloud hosting is desired to synchronize several computers or to offer certain services on each of the computers. Those might be based on grid hosting but that is not necessary it can also be based on one dedicated.

In Grid Hosting you are dependent upon the services provided by the hosting service. If there is a reliability issue with mounted volumes for instance you can not switch to an NAS or new RAID subsystem.

The idea of cloud hosting is one that exhibits itself often and protects a wide range of programs and features. In its easiest feeling it is the term for end customers opening processing sources they need from a cloud.

Grid computing is the combination of computer resources from multiple administrative domains for a common goal.
Cloud computing is Internet-based computing, whereby shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and other devices on-demand, like a public utility.
