Cloud Website Hosting Unveiled

What is cloud hosting indeed? The word 'cloud' seems to be very modern in today's information technology, Internet and web hosting lingo. However, only a few in fact are aware of what cloud hosting is. Perhaps it is a fine idea to educate yourself about cloud hosting services. To render a very lengthy tale short, we will first enlighten you on what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Hosting is Not Limited to a Remote Data Storage Solely.

1. Supplying a remote disk storage solution, which involves one disk storage device for all users, does not transform any given hosting firm into an actual cloud hosting accounts provider.

The cPanel web hosting corporations call the ability to distribute remote data storage services a cloud hosting solution. So far there is nothing bad about the cloud designation, but... we are discussing hosting solutions, not remote data storage services for personal or corporate needs. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to call a shared web hosting solution, based on a one-single-server hosting environment, precisely like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" service. This is so because the other components of the whole web hosting platform must be operating in precisely the same way - this does not apply only to the remote data storage. The rest of the services involved in the whole hosting process also have to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's really problematical. A very meager number of web hosting firms can truly accomplish it.

2. It Involves Domains, Email Boxes, Databases, FTPs, Web Hosting CPs, etc.

Cloud hosting is not limited to a remote file storage solely. We are discussing a web hosting service, serving numerous domain names, online portals, email box accounts, etc., aren't we?

To dub a hosting service a "cloud hosting" one calls for a lot more than distributing just remote data storage mounts (or perhaps physical servers). The email server(s) have to be dedicated exclusively to the mail connected services. Doing nothing different than these given assignments. There might be just one or maybe an entire pack of electronic mail servers, determined by the overall server load created. To have an actual cloud hosting solution, the remote database servers should be performing as one, irrespective of their actual amount. Executing nothing different. The same goes for the customers' hosting Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a true cloud hosting vendor will support numerous server farm facility locations on different continents.

Here's an instance of a DNS of a genuine cloud hosting packages provider:


dns1.imhosting.biz

dns2.imhosting.biz


If such a DNS is offered by your hosting plans provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud web hosting environment in use, but you can definitely be convinced when you notice a DNS such as the one below:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud hosting service. This kind of Domain Name Server only indicates that the hosting environment in use is one-single-server based. Perhaps it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server web hosting platform and maintains a market share of more than 98 percent. In cPanel's case, a single physical server takes care of all hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, FTP, web hosting Control Panel(s), website files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Perverted Description of Cloud Hosting.

So, a cloud hosting service is not confined just to a remote file storage service, as numerous hosting corporations wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, most of the file service providers would have been categorized as cloud hosting ones long ago! They are not referred to as such, as they plainly offer file web hosting solutions, not cloud hosting services. The file hosting platform appears indeed very simple, when compared to the hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, as it's only one simple fragment of the entire cloud hosting platform. There's a lot 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 not too distant future, perchance a few new clouds we presently are not informed about will appear out of nowhere.
