Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

What is cloud hosting really? The word 'cloud' seems to be very trendy in today's computing, World Wide Web and web hosting terminology. However, only a few really can say what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a sensible idea to inform yourself about cloud hosting services. To render a very long story succinct, we will first enlighten you on what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Delivering a remote disk storage service, which comprises one file storage tool for all customers, does not convert any specific hosting company into an authentic cloud hosting supplier.

The cPanel web hosting companies call the ability to furnish remote data storage services a cloud hosting solution. Up until now there is nothing bad about the cloud terminology, but... we are discussing website hosting solutions, not remote file storage services for personal or corporate needs. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to name a shared web hosting service, based on a one-single-server web hosting environment, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud hosting" service. That's because the other components of the whole hosting platform must be working in precisely the same way - this does not apply only to the remote data storage. The rest of the services involved in the whole web hosting process also need to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's very tough. A very meager number of hosting distributors can really make it.

2. It Includes Domain Names, Electronic Mail Aliases, Databases, FTPs, Control Panels, etc.

Cloud hosting is not restricted to a remote file storage only. We are talking about a hosting solution, serving plenty of domains, websites, emails, and so on, aren't we?

To call a web hosting service a "cloud hosting" one demands a lot more than distributing solely remote file storage mounts (or probably physical servers). The electronic mail server(s) have to be dedicated solely to the electronic mail connected services. Doing nothing else than these specific assignments. There might be only one single or possibly an entire bunch of mail servers, determined by the total server load generated. To have a real cloud hosting solution, the remote database servers should be operating as one, regardless of their real number. Doing nothing else. The same is valid for the clients' web hosting Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, and so on.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of an authentic cloud hosting corporation will support numerous server farm sites on multiple continents.

Here's an example of a Domain Name Server of an authentic cloud hosting solutions provider:


dns1.cnss-solutions.com

dns2.cnss-solutions.com


If such a Domain Name Server is supplied by your hosting packages provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can absolutely be confident when you notice a Domain Name Server like the one underneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting service. This sort of DNS plainly manifests that the hosting environment in use is one-single-server based. Possibly it's cPanel. cPanel is a single-server hosting platform and maintains a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, a single physical machine copes with all web hosting services (web, electronic mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, web hosting CP(s), web files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Twisted Definition of Cloud Hosting.

So, a cloud hosting service is not confined simply to a remote file storage solution, as many hosting vendors wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file hosting service providers would have been categorized as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not classified as such, since they plainly furnish file hosting services, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform is indeed very simple, when compared to the web hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's merely one tiny fragment of the whole cloud hosting platform. There's plenty more to be found in the cloud web hosting platform: the CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the upcoming future, possibly a couple of brand new clouds we presently don't know about will appear out of nowhere.
