Cloud Web Hosting Explained

What is cloud web hosting in reality? The term 'cloud' appears to be quite modish in today's information technology, Internet and web hosting phraseology. Nevertheless, only a few in fact are familiar with what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a clever idea to educate yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a very long story succinct, we will firstly inform you about what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Web Hosting is Not Limited to a Remote Disk Storage Only.

1. Offering a remote disk storage service, which comprises one single disk storage appliance for all customers, does not turn any particular hosting firm into a real cloud web hosting services provider.

The cPanel hosting corporations dub the ability to deliver remote file storage services a cloud web hosting service. Until now there is nothing bad about the cloud classification, but... we are talking about website hosting services, not remote disk storage solutions for personal or corporate purposes. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to name a shared web hosting service, powered by a single-server hosting platform, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" solution. That's because the other fractions of the whole hosting platform must be functioning in precisely the same way - this does not relate only to the remote file storage. The remaining services involved in the entire hosting procedure also need to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's quite tough. Very few hosting vendors can actually make it.

2. It Involves Domains, Email Mailbox Accounts, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Web Hosting CPs, etc.

Cloud web hosting is not limited to a remote file storage solely. We are talking about a web hosting solution, serving a lot of domains, online portals, emails, etc., aren't we?

To dub a hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one calls for a lot more than supplying just remote file storage mounts (or possibly physical servers). The email server(s) have to be devoted solely to the email linked services. Doing nothing different than these particular procedures. There might be only one or perhaps an entire array of mail servers, determined by the total server load produced. To have a genuine cloud web hosting solution, the remote database servers should be operating as one, regardless of their actual quantity. Performing nothing different. The same is valid for the users' CPs, the File Transfer Protocol, and so on.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of an actual cloud web hosting company will support multiple datacenter facility sites on different continents.

Here's an example of a DNS of an authentic cloud web hosting distributor:


dns1.server.republikmurah.com

dns2.server.republikmurah.com


If such a DNS is offered by your web hosting provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can definitely be confident when you notice a Domain Name Server such as the one beneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud hosting platform. This sort of Domain Name Server plainly manifests that the hosting platform in use is one-server based. Maybe it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting platform and maintains a market share of more than ninety eight percent. In cPanel's case, one physical machine deals with all web hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, FTP, Control Panel(s), web site files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Twisted Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting.

So, a cloud web hosting solution is not confined just to a remote disk storage service, as lots of hosting distributors wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, most of the file web hosting suppliers would have been referred to as cloud web hosting ones a long time back! They are not categorized as such, since they plainly provide file web hosting services, not cloud hosting services. The file hosting platform appears indeed quite plain, when compared to the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's only one tiny fraction of the entire cloud web hosting platform. There's a lot more to be found in the cloud web hosting platform: the Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the upcoming future, perhaps several brand new clouds we presently are not informed about will come up unexpectedly.
