Explanation of Cloud Website Hosting
What is cloud hosting in fact? The term 'cloud' appears to be very modern in today's computing, World Wide Web and hosting lingo. Nonetheless, only a few really can say what cloud hosting is. Perchance it is a clever idea to educate yourself about cloud hosting services. To render a quite long story concise, we will first tell you what cloud hosting is not.
1. Cloud Hosting is Not Restricted to a Remote File Storage Solely.
1. Providing a remote disk storage service, which involves one disk storage appliance for all clients, does not convert any particular hosting provider into an actual cloud hosting packages provider.
The cPanel hosting corporations dub the ability to supply remote data storage solutions a cloud hosting service. Until now there is nothing bad about the cloud designation, but... we are talking about web hosting solutions, not remote data storage services for individual or corporate needs. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to dub a shared web hosting service, powered by a single-server web hosting platform, just like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" solution. That's because the remaining components of the whole web hosting platform must be operating in precisely the same manner - this does not refer solely to the remote file storage. The remaining services entailed in the whole web hosting procedure also must be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's quite tough. A very meager number of hosting distributors can truly make it.
2. It Includes Domains, E-mail Box Accounts, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Hosting CPs, and so on.
Cloud hosting is not limited to a remote data storage exclusively. We are talking about a hosting service, serving numerous domains, web portals, mail addresses, and so on, right?
To dub a web hosting service a "cloud hosting" one demands a lot more than providing simply remote file storage mounts (or maybe physical servers). The email server(s) have to be devoted exclusively to the e-mail related services. Carrying out nothing else than these particular assignments. There might be only one or perchance a whole array of e-mail servers, based on the total load generated. To have a real cloud hosting service, the remote database servers should be operating as one, regardless of their real amount. Carrying out nothing different. The same is valid for the customers' CPs, the File Transfer Protocol, and so on.
3. There are Cloud Domain Name Servers (DNSs) too.
The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a genuine cloud hosting solutions provider will support multiple server farm locations on multiple continents.
Here's an illustration of a DNS of an authentic cloud hosting services provider:
If such a Domain Name Server is offered by your web hosting packages provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting environment in use, but you can absolutely be convinced when you spot a DNS such as the one underneath:
that there isn't any cloud web hosting service. This sort of Domain Name Server plainly indicates that the hosting environment in use is one-server based. Maybe it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting platform and holds a market share of more than 98 percent. In cPanel's case, one physical server tackles all web hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting Control Panel(s), web files, etc.).
Remote File Storage - The Warped Description of Cloud Hosting.
So, a cloud hosting solution is not confined solely to a remote data storage solution, as multiple hosting firms wish it was. Sadly for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting vendors would have been referred to as cloud hosting ones a long time back! They are not referred to as such, because they plainly distribute file hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting services. The file web hosting platform looks indeed quite simple, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's just one tiny fraction of the whole cloud hosting platform. There's plenty more to be discovered in the cloud hosting platform: the hosting Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the FTP cloud, the electronic mail cloud and... in the not too distant future, maybe a bunch of brand new clouds we presently are not aware of will come up out of nowhere.
