What Precisely is Cloud Web Hosting?

What is cloud web hosting indeed? The word 'cloud' seems to be very modish in today's computing, Internet and web hosting jargon. Nonetheless, only a select few in fact can say what cloud hosting is. Perhaps it is a clever idea to educate yourself about cloud web hosting services. To make a quite long story succinct, we will first acquaint you with what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Providing a remote disk storage service, which involves one file storage appliance for all users, does not convert any given hosting firm into an authentic cloud web hosting company.

The cPanel hosting companies name the ability to furnish remote data storage services a cloud web hosting service. Up to now there is nothing bad about the cloud labeling, but... we are discussing hosting solutions, not remote disk storage solutions for individual or corporate needs. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to dub a shared hosting service, based on a one-server hosting platform, just like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" service. That's because the other fractions of the entire hosting platform must be functioning in precisely the same manner - this does not apply solely to the remote disk storage. The other services entailed in the entire hosting process also have to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's extremely tough. A very scanty number of hosting corporations can truly do it.

2. It Involves Domains, E-mail Boxes, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Control Panels, etc.

Cloud web hosting is not restricted to a remote disk storage solely. We are discussing a web hosting service, serving many domains, web sites, email mailbox accounts, etc., right?

To name a hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one calls for a lot more than supplying solely remote file storage mounts (or maybe physical servers). The email server(s) need to be devoted only to the e-mail connected services. Doing nothing else than these given assignments. There might be just one single or perchance an entire bunch of e-mail servers, determined by the overall server load created. To have an actual cloud web hosting service, the remote database servers should be operating as one, irrespective of their real number. Doing nothing different. The same goes for the users' hosting CPs, the File Transfer Protocol, etc.

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

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

Here's an example of a Domain Name Server of a real cloud web hosting plans provider:

If such a Domain Name Server is provided by your web hosting solutions provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can absolutely be sure when you see a Domain Name Server such as the one beneath:

that there isn't any cloud web hosting service. This kind of DNS only demonstrates that the web hosting environment 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 ninety eight percent. In cPanel's case, one server takes care of all hosting services (web, mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting CP(s), files, etc.).

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

So, a cloud web hosting service is not confined simply to a remote disk storage solution, as lots of service providers wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, most of the file web hosting corporations would have been referred to as cloud hosting ones a long time ago! They are not referred to as such, since they merely distribute file hosting services, not cloud web hosting services. The file hosting platform looks indeed quite plain, when compared to the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's just one simple component of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be discovered in the cloud web hosting platform: the web hosting CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the FTP cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the near future, perchance several brand new clouds we presently are not informed about will show up out of nowhere.
