Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting

What is cloud web hosting actually? The word 'cloud' seems to be quite modern in today's IT, Internet and hosting lingo. Nonetheless, only a few really can say what cloud hosting is. Probably it is a smart idea to educate yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a quite lengthy tale concise, we will firstly tell you what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Furnishing a remote disk storage solution, which comprises one single disk storage tool for all clients, does not transform any given hosting supplier into an actual cloud web hosting company.

The cPanel hosting suppliers name the ability to provide remote data storage services a cloud web hosting solution. Up to now there is nothing wrong with the cloud classification, 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 sufficient to dub a shared hosting service, powered by a one-server hosting platform, precisely like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" solution. That's because the remaining constituents of the entire web hosting platform must be functioning in exactly the same way - this does not relate solely to the remote file storage. The rest of the services entailed in the whole hosting process also need to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's really tough. A very small number of hosting vendors can truly make it.

2. It Entails Domains, E-mails, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Web Hosting Control Panels, and so on.

Cloud web hosting is not restricted to a remote data storage solely. We are discussing a web hosting service, serving multiple domains, web sites, email aliases, and so on, are we not?

To name a hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one requires a lot more than distributing merely remote file storage mounts (or probably servers). The electronic mail server(s) must be devoted solely to the electronic mail linked services. Executing nothing different than these particular assignments. There might be only one or perchance an entire group of mail servers, determined by the overall load generated. To have an actual cloud web hosting solution, the remote database servers should be functioning as one, regardless of their actual number. Doing nothing else. The same goes for the users' web hosting Control Panels, the FTP, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a genuine cloud web hosting accounts provider will support multiple server farm locations on different continents.

Here's an example of a Domain Name Server of an authentic cloud web hosting corporation:


dns1.azvasa.net

dns2.azvasa.net


If such a Domain Name Server is offered by your web hosting solutions provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud web hosting platform in use, but you can definitely be convinced when you observe a Domain Name Server like the one beneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This kind of DNS simply illustrates that the hosting platform in use is one-server based. Probably it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting platform and has a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, one server takes care of all web hosting services (web, electronic mail, DNS, databases, FTP, CP(s), web files, and so on).

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

So, a cloud web hosting solution is not confined solely to a remote data storage solution, as numerous service providers wish it was. Sadly for them, if that was the case, most of the file service providers would have been referred to as cloud hosting ones long ago! They are not referred to as such, because they plainly provide file hosting services, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform looks really quite plain, when compared to the hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's only one small constituent of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's a lot more to be encountered in the cloud hosting platform: the web hosting Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the mail cloud and... in the near future, probably a bunch of new clouds we presently are not acquainted with will appear out of nowhere.
