Description of Cloud Hosting

What is cloud website hosting indeed? The term 'cloud' seems to be very modern in today's IT, World Wide Web and web hosting lingo. Nonetheless, just a few actually can say what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a good idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To make a very long tale succinct, we will first notify you about what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Providing a remote file storage solution, which involves one single disk storage appliance for all clients, does not convert any given web hosting supplier into an actual cloud website hosting distributor.

The cPanel hosting firms call the ability to deliver remote disk storage solutions a cloud website hosting service. Until now there is nothing wrong with the cloud classification, but... we are discussing hosting services, not remote file storage solutions for private or corporate needs. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to call a shared web hosting service, driven by a one-single-server web hosting environment, just like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" service. This is so because the remaining components of the whole hosting platform must be operating in exactly the same way - this does not refer only to the remote data storage. The other services entailed in the whole hosting process also need to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's really difficult. Very few web hosting distributors can truly achieve it.

2. It Involves Domain Names, E-mail Accounts, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, CPs, and so on.

Cloud website hosting is not confined to a remote file storage solely. We are talking about a hosting service, serving countless domain names, websites, e-mail boxes, and so on, right?

To call a hosting service a "cloud website hosting" one calls for a lot more than supplying merely remote file storage mounts (or perchance servers). The e-mail server(s) need to be devoted just to the e-mail related services. Performing nothing else than these particular assignments. There might be only one single or possibly an entire assortment of email servers, determined by the overall server load created. To have an actual cloud website hosting service, the remote database servers should be working as one, irrespective of their actual number. Executing nothing else. The same is valid for the clients' web hosting CPs, the File Transfer Protocol, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a true cloud website hosting services provider will support multiple server farm facility locations on multiple continents.

Here's an example of a DNS of a true cloud website hosting plans provider:


dns1.itsecuritymex.com

dns2.itsecuritymex.com


If such a DNS is offered by your hosting accounts provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud web hosting platform in use, but you can definitely be confident when you spot a DNS like the one below:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This sort of Domain Name Server only illustrates that the hosting environment in use is one-server based. Probably it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server web hosting platform and holds a market share of more than ninety eight percent. In cPanel's case, a single server tackles all hosting services (web, e-mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting Control Panel(s), website files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Distorted Characterization of Cloud Website Hosting.

So, a cloud website hosting service is not limited only to a remote data storage solution, as multiple hosting service providers wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, most of the file web hosting service providers would have been categorized as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not referred to as such, as they simply deliver file web hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file hosting platform looks indeed very simple, when compared to the web hosting platform. The remote data storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's simply one small part of the entire cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be encountered in the cloud hosting platform: the hosting CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the email cloud and... in the upcoming future, maybe several brand new clouds we presently don't know about will emerge unexpectedly.
