In practical experience, no difference. But technically, signing out leaves the cookie on your machine, while logging out deletes the cookie too. Sites use both functions according to there purpose. Rediff uses sign out, which is insecure too.

Both mean the same. For e.g. Rediff makes use of Logout whereas Gmail makes use of Signout. Its just that both of them want to sound different.
