What is cloud website hosting in reality? The word 'cloud' appears to be very fashionable in today's computing, World Wide Web and web hosting lingo. Still, just a select few really are familiar with what cloud hosting is. Perchance it is a smart idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To make a quite lengthy story succinct, we will firstly notify you about what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Furnishing a remote data storage service, which involves one single data storage tool for all clients, does not convert any given hosting distributor into an actual cloud website hosting provider.

The cPanel hosting vendors name the ability to distribute remote file storage services a cloud website hosting service. Until now there is nothing bad about the cloud classification, but... we are talking about hosting services, not remote file storage services for individual or corporate purposes. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to name a shared web hosting service, based on a one-single-server web hosting environment, precisely like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" service. This is so because the remaining parts of the whole web hosting platform must be functioning in exactly the same way - this does not relate only to the remote data storage. The other services involved in the whole hosting process also have to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's extremely problematical. A very scanty number of web hosting suppliers can really do it.

2. It Entails Domain Names, E-mail Box Accounts, Databases, FTPs, Web Hosting Control Panels, and so on.

Cloud website hosting is not confined to a remote data storage exclusively. We are discussing a web hosting solution, serving a lot of domain names, web pages, mails, and so on, are we not?

To call a web hosting service a "cloud website hosting" one demands a lot more than offering plainly remote disk storage mounts (or maybe servers). The e-mail server(s) have to be devoted exclusively to the email linked services. Doing nothing else than these particular procedures. There might be only one single or perchance an entire pack of electronic mail servers, determined by the overall load generated. To have a real cloud website hosting solution, the remote database servers should be working as one, irrespective of their real amount. Performing nothing else. The same is valid for the customers' hosting Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, and so on.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a real cloud website hosting vendor will support multiple datacenter facility sites on different continents.

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



If such a Domain Name Server is supplied by your web hosting services provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud web hosting environment in use, but you can absolutely be convinced when you perceive a Domain Name Server like the one underneath:



that there isn't any cloud hosting platform. This type of DNS simply demonstrates that the hosting platform in use is one-server based. Possibly it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server web hosting solution and holds a market share of more than 98 percent. In cPanel's case, a single physical server handles all hosting services (web, electronic mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, CP(s), files, and so on).

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

So, a cloud website hosting solution is not limited simply to a remote file storage solution, as lots of hosting distributors wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, most of the file service providers would have been referred to as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not classified as such, since they merely distribute file web hosting solutions, not cloud hosting services. The file web hosting platform is really very plain, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote data storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's just one small constituent of the entire 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 Domain Name Server cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the electronic mail cloud and... in the near future, probably a couple of new clouds we presently are not informed about will turn up out of the blue.
