What is cloud website hosting really? The term 'cloud' appears to be very fashionable in today's computing, World Wide Web and hosting lingo. Still, only a select few in fact know what cloud hosting is. Possibly it is a good idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To render a very lengthy tale succinct, we will first reveal to you what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Website Hosting is Not Limited to a Remote File Storage Exclusively.

1. Offering a remote file storage service, which involves one single disk storage tool for all customers, does not convert any given hosting distributor into an actual cloud website hosting provider.

The cPanel hosting companies name the ability to supply remote data storage services a cloud website hosting solution. Until now there is nothing wrong with the cloud classification, but... we are discussing hosting solutions, not remote file storage services for personal or corporate purposes. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to call a shared web hosting solution, driven by a single-server web hosting platform, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" solution. This is so because the remaining parts of the whole web hosting platform must be operating in exactly the same way - this does not relate only to the remote data storage. The remaining services entailed in the whole web hosting procedure also have to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's extremely difficult. A very small number of web hosting vendors can truly attain it.

2. It Encompasses Domains, Mails, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Web Hosting CPs, etc.

Cloud website hosting is not limited to a remote disk storage exclusively. We are discussing a web hosting service, serving lots of domain names, web portals, e-mail aliases, etc., right?

To dub a hosting service a "cloud website hosting" one calls for a lot more than providing simply remote file storage mounts (or probably physical servers). The electronic mail server(s) need to be devoted solely to the e-mail linked services. Carrying out nothing different than these concrete procedures. There might be only one or probably an entire bundle of e-mail servers, depending on the total server load generated. To have a genuine cloud website hosting solution, the remote database servers should be performing as one, irrespective of their actual amount. Executing nothing else. The same goes for the customers' Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, etc.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of a genuine cloud website hosting services provider will support multiple data center facility locations on multiple continents.

Here's an example of a Domain Name Server of a genuine cloud website hosting services provider:


dns1.localsmallbusinesshosting.com

dns2.localsmallbusinesshosting.com


If such a Domain Name Server is furnished by your hosting plans provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting platform in use, but you can definitely be confident when you discern a DNS like the one below:


dns658.hostgator.com

dns659.hostgator.com


that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This kind of Domain Name Server just manifests that the hosting platform in use is one-single-server based. Perhaps it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server web hosting solution and maintains a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, a single physical machine takes care of all web hosting services (web, mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, CP(s), website files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Warped Interpretation of Cloud Website Hosting.

So, a cloud website hosting service is not limited only to a remote file storage service, as a lot of hosting service providers wish it was. Unfortunately for them, if that was the case, most of the file hosting suppliers would have been categorized as cloud web hosting ones a long time ago! They are not referred to as such, as they plainly provide file hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform appears indeed quite simple, in comparison with the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, as it's simply one simple fragment of the whole cloud hosting platform. There's a lot more to be discovered in the cloud web hosting platform: the CP cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the FTP cloud, the e-mail cloud and... in the foreseeable future, possibly a few new clouds we presently don't know about will show up unexpectedly.
