Cloud Hosting Unveiled

What is cloud web hosting really? The word 'cloud' seems to be very modern in today's information technology, Internet and hosting lingo. In spite of that, only a few in fact are aware of what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a smart idea to educate yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a quite lengthy story short, we will firstly describe to you what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Delivering a remote data storage solution, which involves one single disk storage appliance for all clients, does not turn any particular web hosting supplier into an actual cloud web hosting vendor. The cPanel hosting corporations name the ability to offer remote file storage services a cloud web hosting solution. Up to now there is nothing wrong with the cloud designation, but... we are talking about website hosting solutions, not remote disk storage services for individual or business purposes. There's always one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to name a shared hosting service, powered by a one-server hosting environment, just like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" service. That's because the other constituents of the whole web hosting platform must be operating in exactly the same manner - this does not refer only to the remote data storage. The remaining services involved in the whole web hosting procedure also must be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's very problematical. Very few web hosting companies can really accomplish it.

2. It Involves Domain Names, Email Boxes, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Control Panels, and so on.

Cloud web hosting is not limited to a remote data storage solely. We are discussing a hosting service, serving lots of domain names, web portals, emails, etc., right? To name a web hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one calls for a lot more than offering plainly remote disk storage mounts (or perhaps servers). The email server(s) must be dedicated solely to the email linked services. Executing nothing different than these given procedures. There might be just one or possibly a whole pack of email servers, determined by the overall server load created. To have an actual cloud web hosting service, the remote database servers should be performing as one, irrespective of their actual number. Executing nothing else. The same goes 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 web hosting packages provider will support multiple server farm facility locations on multiple continents. Here's an example of a DNS of an authentic cloud web hosting provider: dns1.firebandcloud.com dns2.firebandcloud.com If such a DNS is provided by your web hosting plans provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting environment in use, but you can definitely be convinced when you notice a DNS such as the one beneath: dns658.hostgator.com dns659.hostgator.com that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This kind of DNS plainly exhibits that the web hosting environment in use is one-server based. Probably it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting platform and maintains a market share of more than 98%. In cPanel's case, one physical machine copes with all web hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting CP(s), web files, and so on).

Remote File Storage - The Distorted Definition of Cloud Web Hosting.

So, a cloud web hosting service is not restricted only to a remote disk storage service, as numerous web hosting corporations wish it was. Unfortunately for them, if that was the case, most of the file hosting service providers would have been categorized as cloud hosting ones long ago! They are not classified as such, because they simply furnish file web hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file hosting platform appears indeed quite plain, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's only one simple fragment of the whole cloud hosting platform. There's a lot more to be discovered in the cloud hosting platform: the CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the FTP cloud, the email cloud and... in the upcoming future, possibly a few new clouds we presently are not acquainted with will emerge out of nowhere.
