Cloud Web Hosting Description

What is cloud hosting in reality? The word 'cloud' seems to be very modish in today's computing, World Wide Web and hosting lingo. Nonetheless, only a few actually are aware of what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a sensible idea to educate yourself about cloud hosting services. To make a quite lengthy tale succinct, we will firstly enlighten you on what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Hosting is Not Confined to a Remote File Storage Exclusively.

1. Delivering a remote data storage service, which comprises one file storage device for all users, does not convert any given hosting supplier into a genuine cloud hosting firm.

The cPanel hosting firms dub the ability to offer remote data storage solutions a cloud hosting solution. Until now there is nothing bad about the cloud labeling, but... we are talking about website hosting services, not remote data storage solutions for private or business purposes. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to name a shared web hosting service, based on a one-single-server hosting environment, precisely like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" service. That's because the other fractions of the whole web hosting platform must be functioning in precisely the same manner - this does not relate solely to the remote file storage. The rest of the services involved in the entire hosting process also need to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's quite problematical. A very scanty number of web hosting companies can really do it.

2. It Includes Domain Names, Email Aliases, Databases, FTPs, Hosting CPs, and so on.

Cloud hosting is not confined to a remote data storage exclusively. We are discussing a web hosting solution, serving plenty of domain names, websites, electronic mail addresses, etc., are we not?

To call a web hosting service a "cloud hosting" one takes a lot more than offering only remote disk storage mounts (or probably servers). The email server(s) have to be dedicated exclusively to the mail associated services. Executing nothing different than these concrete procedures. There might be just one or maybe an entire array of electronic mail servers, determined by the total server load created. To have a true cloud hosting solution, the remote database servers should be performing as one, irrespective of their real quantity. Performing nothing else. The same is valid for the users' hosting CPs, the FTP, etc.

3. There are Cloud Domain Servers (DNSs) as well.

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a real cloud hosting corporation will support numerous data center sites on multiple continents.

Here's an illustration of a DNS of an actual cloud hosting accounts provider:



If such a DNS is furnished by your hosting packages provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can definitely be certain when you observe a Domain Name Server such as the one beneath:



that there isn't any cloud hosting service. This sort of Domain Name Server only indicates that the web hosting environment in use is one-server based. Probably it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting platform and holds a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, a single physical server takes care of all hosting services (web, mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, web 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 limited simply to a remote data storage service, as multiple web hosting vendors wish it was. Sadly for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting vendors would have been referred to as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not referred to as such, since they merely distribute file hosting services, not cloud hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform seems really very plain, when compared to the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's just one small part of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be encountered in the cloud hosting platform: the hosting Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the FTP cloud, the mail cloud and... in the upcoming future, perchance a few brand new clouds we presently are not informed about will come up out of the blue.
