Cloud Website Hosting Description

What is cloud web hosting really? The term 'cloud' seems to be quite trendy in today's information technology, World Wide Web and hosting terminology. Even so, just a few actually are informed about what cloud hosting is. Maybe it is a clever idea to inform yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a quite lengthy tale concise, we will first enlighten you on what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Offering a remote disk storage solution, which comprises one single disk storage tool for all customers, does not turn any given hosting service provider into a real cloud web hosting plans provider.

The cPanel hosting distributors dub the ability to distribute remote data storage services a cloud web hosting service. Up to now there is nothing wrong with the cloud designation, but... we are talking about website hosting solutions, not remote file storage services for individual or corporate needs. There's always one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to call a shared hosting solution, based on a one-single-server hosting platform, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" solution. This is so because the remaining parts of the whole hosting platform must be working in exactly the same manner - this does not refer solely to the remote data storage. The other services involved in the whole hosting procedure also must be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's very tough. A very small number of service providers can truly attain it.

2. It Entails Domains, Email Aliases, Databases, FTPs, Hosting Control Panels, etc.

Cloud web hosting is not confined to a remote disk storage only. We are discussing a web hosting solution, serving lots of domains, online portals, email addresses, etc., aren't we?

To call a hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one needs a lot more than distributing solely remote file storage mounts (or maybe servers). The e-mail server(s) must be devoted solely to the electronic mail connected services. Carrying out nothing different than these given procedures. There might be only one single or perchance a whole bunch of email servers, determined by the total load produced. To have a real cloud web hosting solution, the remote database servers should be operating as one, regardless of their real quantity. Executing nothing else. The same is valid for the users' Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, and so on.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a genuine cloud web hosting supplier will support numerous datacenter sites on multiple continents.

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


dns1.www.xgen-hosting.com

dns2.www.xgen-hosting.com


If such a Domain Name Server is furnished by your web hosting packages provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting environment in use, but you can definitely be certain when you see a DNS like the one underneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud hosting service. This type of Domain Name Server only manifests that the hosting platform in use is one-single-server based. Maybe it's cPanel. cPanel is a single-server hosting solution and maintains a market share of more than 98 percent. In cPanel's case, one single physical machine takes care of all hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting Control Panel(s), web files, and so on).

Remote File Storage - The Warped Characterization of Cloud Web Hosting.

So, a cloud web hosting solution is not confined only to a remote file storage solution, as lots of hosting corporations wish it was. Sadly for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting distributors would have been referred to as cloud web hosting ones long ago! They are not referred to as such, as they merely offer file web hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting services. The file hosting platform looks really quite simple, in comparison with the hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, as it's merely one small component of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be discovered in the cloud web hosting platform: the web hosting Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the email cloud and... in the near future, probably a couple of new clouds we presently don't know about will appear out of nowhere.
