Unsurprisingly, I use the cloud to host my website. Specifically, I use Microsoft Azure, the cloud that I help build. My website is serverful — there is a VM that I manage which serves the content. The actual site is not complicated. There is no server side processing. It is boring HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The benefit of the cloud is that the files actually live in Azure Files. It is no big deal if the VM gets nuked. I can mount the storage volume in a new VM. I would need to do a bit of configuration on the new VM but nothing too painful.

I might use ssh access to muck around but, at the end of the day, the machine is disposable. That's the benefit of the cloud.
