How Does Cloud Web Hosting Function?

What is cloud web hosting actually? The word 'cloud' seems to be quite fashionable in today's IT, Internet and web hosting terminology. Yet, just a select few really can say what cloud hosting is. Perhaps it is a fine idea to inform yourself about cloud web hosting services. To render a quite long story brief, we will firstly notify you about what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Furnishing a remote data storage service, which comprises one file storage tool for all users, does not transform any particular hosting corporation into an actual cloud web hosting services provider.

The cPanel hosting vendors dub the ability to distribute remote file storage solutions a cloud web hosting solution. Up until now there is nothing wrong with the cloud terminology, but... we are talking about hosting solutions, not remote data storage services for personal or business purposes. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to name a shared web hosting service, driven by a single-server hosting environment, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud web hosting" solution. That's because the other components of the entire web hosting platform must be working in exactly the same manner - this does not apply solely to the remote data storage. The rest of the services involved in the whole hosting procedure also need to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's quite hard. Very few web hosting firms can truly accomplish it.

2. It Includes Domains, Email Mailboxes, Databases, FTPs, Web Hosting Control Panels, etc.

Cloud web hosting is not confined to a remote data storage solely. We are talking about a web hosting solution, serving many domains, online portals, e-mail accounts, etc., are we not?

To dub a hosting service a "cloud web hosting" one calls for a lot more than delivering plainly remote data storage mounts (or possibly physical servers). The e-mail server(s) need to be dedicated only to the mail linked services. Performing nothing else than these specific tasks. There might be only one or probably a whole pack of e-mail servers, based on the total server load created. To have a true cloud web hosting solution, the remote database servers should be performing as one, regardless of their real number. Doing nothing different. The same is valid for the users' CPs, the File Transfer Protocol, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of an actual cloud web hosting packages provider will support multiple datacenter sites on multiple continents.

Here's an illustration of a Domain Name Server of a real cloud web hosting vendor:


dns1.masterwebmanager.com

dns2.masterwebmanager.com


If such a DNS is provided by your web hosting packages provider, it's not a sure thing that there is a cloud hosting environment in use, but you can definitely be sure when you spot a Domain Name Server like the one underneath:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting service. This type of Domain Name Server merely manifests that the web hosting environment in use is one-server based. Perchance it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server web hosting platform and has a market share of more than 98%. In cPanel's case, one physical server copes with all hosting services (web, e-mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, hosting Control Panel(s), website files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Perverted Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting.

So, a cloud web hosting service is not confined simply to a remote file storage service, as multiple hosting vendors wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting service providers would have been categorized as cloud web hosting ones long ago! They are not classified as such, since they merely deliver file web hosting services, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform is indeed quite simple, when compared to the hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's merely one tiny constituent of the whole cloud web hosting platform. There's a lot more to be found in the cloud hosting platform: the web hosting CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the email cloud and... in the near future, probably a bunch of new clouds we presently don't know about will turn up unexpectedly.
