What is cloud web hosting in reality? The word 'cloud' appears to be quite modern in today's computing, World Wide Web and web hosting parlance. Still, only a select few actually can say what cloud hosting is. Probably it is a clever idea to inform yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a quite long tale succinct, we will first let you know what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Delivering a remote data storage service, which comprises one data storage appliance for all customers, does not transform any particular web hosting firm into an actual cloud web hosting distributor.

The cPanel web hosting companies dub the ability to provide remote file storage solutions a cloud web hosting service. Up to now there is nothing bad about the cloud designation, but... we are talking about web hosting services, not remote disk storage solutions for individual or business needs. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to name a shared web hosting service, driven by a one-single-server web hosting environment, just like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" solution. That's because the other constituents of the whole web hosting platform must be functioning in precisely the same manner - this does not refer only to the remote disk storage. The remaining services involved in the whole web hosting procedure also need to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's really hard. Very few hosting providers can really make it.

2. It Entails Domains, Email Addresses, Databases, FTPs, Web Hosting CPs, etc.

Cloud web hosting is not restricted to a remote file storage solely. We are talking about a web hosting service, serving a lot of domain names, web sites, electronic mail accounts, and so on, right?

To call a hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one demands a lot more than providing only remote data storage mounts (or perchance servers). The electronic mail server(s) have to be devoted solely to the email linked services. Executing nothing else than these particular procedures. There might be only one or possibly a whole array of mail servers, depending on the overall server load generated. To have a true cloud web hosting solution, the remote database servers should be working as one, regardless of their real amount. Executing nothing different. The same goes for the customers' hosting Control Panels, the FTP, and so on.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a genuine cloud web hosting services provider will support numerous server farm facility sites on multiple continents.

Here's an instance of a Domain Name Server of an actual cloud web hosting solutions provider:

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

that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This kind of DNS just displays that the web hosting platform in use is one-single-server based. Perhaps it's cPanel. cPanel is a single-server web hosting solution and has a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, one physical machine copes with all hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, FTP, CP(s), files, etc.).

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

So, a cloud web hosting solution is not restricted just to a remote file storage solution, as many hosting providers wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file hosting distributors would have been categorized as cloud hosting ones a long time ago! They are not referred to as such, as they simply deliver file hosting solutions, not cloud hosting solutions. The file hosting platform appears indeed quite plain, when compared to the web hosting platform. The remote data storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, as it's simply one tiny part of the whole cloud hosting platform. There's a lot more to be found in the cloud hosting platform: the 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 foreseeable future, perhaps a number of brand new clouds we currently are not aware of will turn up out of nowhere.
