Description of Cloud Web Hosting

What is cloud hosting indeed? The word 'cloud' appears to be quite trendy in today's information technology, World Wide Web and web hosting jargon. Yet, only a few in fact can say what cloud hosting is. Perchance it is a clever idea to educate yourself about cloud hosting services. To render a very lengthy tale short, we will firstly inform you about what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Hosting is Not Limited to a Remote Disk Storage Solely.

1. Offering a remote data storage service, which comprises one data storage tool for all customers, does not convert any particular hosting company into an authentic cloud hosting accounts provider.

The cPanel hosting firms name the ability to supply remote file storage solutions a cloud hosting solution. Until now there is nothing wrong with the cloud labeling, but... we are discussing website hosting solutions, not remote file storage solutions for private or corporate needs. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to name a shared web hosting service, based on a one-single-server hosting environment, precisely like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" service. This is so because the remaining fractions of the entire hosting platform must be working in precisely the same manner - this does not apply solely to the remote disk storage. The other services entailed in the whole hosting process also need to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's very problematical. A very meager number of hosting corporations can actually make it.

2. It Includes Domain Names, Email Mailbox Accounts, Databases, FTPs, Web Hosting CPs, and so on.

Cloud hosting is not restricted to a remote disk storage solely. We are discussing a web hosting solution, serving multiple domains, web sites, e-mailbox accounts, etc., right?

To call a hosting service a "cloud hosting" one takes a lot more than providing merely remote file storage mounts (or possibly physical servers). The email server(s) have to be devoted just to the mail associated services. Executing nothing different than these given assignments. There might be only one single or perchance an entire set of mail servers, based on the overall server load produced. To have an authentic cloud hosting solution, the remote database servers should be operating as one, regardless of their real quantity. Executing nothing different. The same is valid for the users' hosting Control Panels, the FTP, and so on.

3. There are Cloud Domain Servers (DNSs) too.

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of an authentic cloud hosting supplier will support multiple server farm facility locations on different continents.

Here's an example of a DNS of a true cloud hosting vendor:


dns1.serverblog.xyz

dns2.serverblog.xyz


If such a DNS is provided by your hosting company, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can absolutely be convinced when you discern a DNS such as the one below:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud hosting service. This sort of Domain Name Server just demonstrates that the web hosting platform in use is one-single-server based. Perchance it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server web hosting solution and has a market share of more than 98 percent. In cPanel's case, one physical machine copes with all web hosting services (web, mail, DNS, databases, FTP, hosting Control Panel(s), web site files, and so on).

Remote File Storage - The Distorted Explanation of Cloud Hosting.

So, a cloud hosting service is not confined just to a remote data storage solution, as many hosting firms wish it was. Unfortunately for them, if that was the case, most of the file hosting distributors would have been classified as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not referred to as such, because they plainly distribute file web hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting services. The file web hosting platform appears indeed very plain, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's only one tiny fragment of the entire cloud hosting platform. There's plenty more to be discovered in the cloud hosting platform: the hosting CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the FTP cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the foreseeable future, perhaps a bunch of new clouds we currently are not informed about will appear out of nowhere.
