Difference between move and moveto

I'm still unclear as to what the difference is between moveto and move. Can someone explain it to me in terms a dummy like myself can understand?

moveto is when you want to rename something.

felix@gemini:~$ cp /etc/hosts .
felix@gemini:~$ rclone moveto hosts GD:testmove
felix@gemini:~$ rclone ls GD:testmove
      510 testmove

Generally, I never use moveto and just move all the time as I never want to rename a file when I a copy or move it.

If you pass a directory, it acts just like move:

This can be used to rename files or upload single files to other than their existing name. If the source is a directory then it acts exactly like the move command.
