What In Fact is Cloud Website Hosting?
What is cloud website hosting really? The term 'cloud' seems to be quite modish in today's computing, World Wide Web and hosting phraseology. Nonetheless, just a select few really can tell what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a fine idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To make a quite long story short, we will firstly describe to you what cloud hosting is not.
1. Cloud Website Hosting is Not Limited to a Remote Data Storage Solely.
1. Supplying a remote data storage solution, which involves one data storage tool for all clients, does not turn any specific service provider into an actual cloud website hosting firm.
The cPanel web hosting suppliers call the ability to provide remote data storage services a cloud website hosting service. Up till now there is nothing wrong with the cloud labeling, but... we are talking about hosting solutions, not remote data storage services for personal or business needs. There's always one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to call a shared web hosting service, driven by a single-server web hosting platform, just like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" service. That's because the other constituents of the whole hosting platform must be functioning in precisely the same way - this does not relate only to the remote file storage. The other services involved in the entire hosting process also need to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's extremely difficult. A very scanty number of web hosting distributors can actually do it.
2. It Includes Domain Names, Mailbox Aliases, Databases, FTPs, Hosting Control Panels, and so on.
Cloud website hosting is not limited to a remote data storage only. We are discussing a web hosting service, serving plenty of domain names, web pages, e-mailboxes, and so on, aren't we?
To call a web hosting service a "cloud website hosting" one takes a lot more than delivering solely remote data storage mounts (or probably physical servers). The electronic mail server(s) must be devoted exclusively to the e-mail associated services. Carrying out nothing different than these given procedures. There might be just one or maybe an entire collection of electronic mail servers, based on the total load produced. To have a real cloud website hosting service, the remote database servers should be operating as one, regardless of their actual amount. Performing nothing different. The same goes for the customers' hosting CPs, the FTP, etc.
3. There are Cloud Domain Name Servers (DNSs) as well.
The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a true cloud website hosting firm will support multiple server farm facility locations on different continents.
Here's an instance of a Domain Name Server of a true cloud website hosting supplier:
If such a DNS is provided by your web hosting provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud web hosting environment in use, but you can absolutely be confident when you discern a Domain Name Server such as the one underneath:
that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This type of Domain Name Server only displays that the web hosting environment in use is one-server based. Possibly it's cPanel. cPanel is a single-server hosting solution and maintains a market share of more than 98%. In cPanel's case, a single server is responsible for all web hosting services (web, email, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting Control Panel(s), web files, etc.).
Remote File Storage - The Warped Characterization of Cloud Website Hosting.
So, a cloud website hosting service is not restricted exclusively to a remote file storage service, as multiple web hosting firms wish it was. Unfortunately for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting corporations would have been referred to as cloud hosting ones long ago! They are not classified as such, because they merely furnish file hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting services. The file hosting platform appears indeed very plain, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, because it's just one simple segment of the entire cloud web hosting platform. There's a lot more to be discovered in the cloud hosting platform: the hosting CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the email cloud and... in the not too distant future, possibly a couple of new clouds we presently don't know about will appear out of the blue.
