What is cloud web hosting really? The term 'cloud' appears to be very trendy in today's information technology, World Wide Web and web hosting phraseology. Nonetheless, just a select few actually can tell what cloud hosting is. Maybe it is a good idea to educate yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a quite long tale concise, we will first disclose to you what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Providing a remote data storage solution, which involves one data storage tool for all customers, does not convert any particular web hosting supplier into an authentic cloud web hosting packages provider.

The cPanel hosting distributors name the ability to furnish remote disk storage services a cloud web hosting service. So far there is nothing bad about the cloud labeling, but... we are talking about hosting services, not remote file storage services for personal or corporate needs. There's always one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to dub a shared hosting service, powered by a one-single-server hosting environment, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" service. That's because the remaining pieces of the entire web hosting platform must be operating in exactly the same manner - this does not apply solely to the remote data storage. The remaining services entailed in the entire web hosting process also have to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's really tough. Very few hosting vendors can actually do it.

2. It Encompasses Domains, Email Aliases, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, CPs, etc.

Cloud web hosting is not confined to a remote disk storage solely. We are talking about a hosting solution, serving plenty of domain names, websites, mail aliases, and so on, are we not?

To dub a web hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one requires a lot more than providing solely remote disk storage mounts (or probably physical servers). The email server(s) must be devoted only to the e-mail related services. Carrying out nothing different than these particular procedures. There might be only one or possibly a whole stack of e-mail servers, based on the total load created. To have a real cloud web hosting service, the remote database servers should be performing as one, regardless of their real number. Performing nothing different. The same goes for the clients' web hosting Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a real cloud web hosting accounts provider will support numerous datacenter locations on different continents.

Here's an instance of a Domain Name Server of a real cloud web hosting distributor:


dns1.www.philwebdev.com

dns2.www.philwebdev.com


If such a DNS is provided by your web hosting plans provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can absolutely be convinced when you perceive a DNS like the one underneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud hosting platform. This sort of DNS just manifests that the web hosting platform in use is one-server based. Possibly it's cPanel. cPanel is a single-server hosting platform and has a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, one physical server takes care of all hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting CP(s), web files, and so on).

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

So, a cloud web hosting solution is not limited just to a remote data storage service, as lots of hosting firms wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file hosting suppliers would have been categorized as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not categorized as such, as they simply offer file web hosting services, not cloud web hosting services. The file hosting platform seems really quite simple, in comparison with the hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's merely one tiny fragment of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's a lot more to be discovered in the cloud hosting platform: the CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the FTP cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the not too distant future, maybe a couple of brand new clouds we currently are not informed about will appear out of nowhere.
