Cloud Website Hosting Disclosed

What is cloud hosting in fact? The term 'cloud' seems to be quite trendy in today's computing, Internet and web hosting jargon. Nonetheless, only a few really are familiar with what cloud hosting is. Maybe it is a clever idea to inform yourself about cloud hosting services. To render a very long story concise, we will first inform you about what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Hosting is Not Confined to a Remote Data Storage Only.

1. Furnishing a remote disk storage service, which involves one disk storage device for all customers, does not convert any specific hosting distributor into an authentic cloud hosting firm.

The cPanel web hosting companies call the ability to supply remote data storage services a cloud hosting solution. Until now there is nothing bad about the cloud terminology, but... we are discussing hosting services, not remote data storage solutions for private or corporate purposes. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to call a shared web hosting solution, powered by a single-server web hosting platform, just like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" solution. This is so because the remaining fractions of the entire web hosting platform must be operating in exactly the same manner - this does not refer solely to the remote data storage. The other services entailed in the entire web hosting process also have to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's very difficult. Very few hosting firms can truly attain it.

2. It Includes Domain Names, Email Mailbox Accounts, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Hosting Control Panels, and so on.

Cloud hosting is not limited to a remote disk storage solely. We are discussing a hosting service, serving lots of domains, web sites, e-mail accounts, and so on, aren't we?

To name a hosting service a "cloud hosting" one requires a lot more than supplying plainly remote disk storage mounts (or possibly physical servers). The email server(s) need to be devoted only to the e-mail related services. Performing nothing else than these given assignments. There might be only one single or possibly a whole collection of mail servers, based on the total load created. To have a true cloud hosting service, the remote database servers should be functioning as one, regardless of their actual amount. Executing nothing different. The same goes for the customers' hosting Control Panels, the FTP, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a real cloud hosting firm will support numerous server farm sites on different continents.

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


dns1.nutmeghost.com

dns2.nutmeghost.com


If such a DNS is furnished by your web hosting accounts provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud hosting environment in use, but you can definitely be sure when you discern a Domain Name Server such as the one below:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This type of DNS only exhibits that the web hosting environment in use is one-server based. Possibly it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server hosting solution and has a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, one single server deals with all hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, FTP, CP(s), files, and so on).

Remote File Storage - The Perverted Explanation of Cloud Hosting.

So, a cloud hosting service is not restricted only to a remote file storage service, as many web hosting distributors wish it was. Sadly for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file hosting corporations would have been classified as cloud hosting ones a long time back! They are not classified as such, as they plainly furnish file hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file hosting platform appears indeed very simple, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's just one simple segment of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be found in the cloud web hosting platform: the Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the FTP cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the upcoming future, maybe several brand new clouds we presently are not acquainted with will emerge unexpectedly.
