What is cloud website hosting indeed? The term 'cloud' appears to be quite trendy in today's information technology, Internet, and web hosting terminology. Nonetheless, only a select few are informed about what cloud hosting is. Probably it is a sensible idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To make a very long tale concise, we will firstly let you know what cloud hosting is not.

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

1. Delivering a remote file storage service, which involves one data storage device for all customers, does not transform any given hosting supplier into a real cloud website hosting accounts provider. The cPanel hosting suppliers name the ability to offer remote data storage solutions as a cloud website hosting service. There is nothing wrong with the cloud labeling, but... we are talking about web hosting services, not remote disk storage services for individual or corporate needs. There's always one "but," isn't there? It's not sufficient to dub a shared web hosting service driven by a single-server hosting environment, like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" service. This is so because the remaining fractions of the whole hosting platform must be working in precisely the same manner - this does not apply solely to the remote data storage. The remaining services entailed in the entire web hosting process also must be remote, isolated, and "clouded." And that's hard. A very meager number of hosting providers can attain it.

2. It Encompasses Domain Names, Email Box Accounts, Databases, FTPs, Web Hosting CPs, etc.

Cloud website hosting is not limited to remote disk storage exclusively. We are talking about a hosting service, serving multiple domain names, sites, mailbox accounts, and so on, are we not? Calling a hosting service a "cloud website hosting" requires a lot more than delivering only remote disk storage mounts (or perhaps servers). The e-mail server(s) must be devoted to the e-mail-connected services. They are performing nothing different than these given tasks. There might be just one or perhaps a bundle of electronic mail servers, determined by the total server load produced. To have an actual cloud website hosting service, the remote database servers should be functioning as one, regardless of their actual number, and executing nothing else. The same is valid for the users' web hosting CPs, the FTP, etc.

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

A real cloud website hosting supplier's DNSs (Domain Name Servers) will support numerous server farm sites on multiple continents. Here's an illustration of a DNS of an actual cloud website hosting distributor: If your hosting plans provider furnishes such a DNS, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud hosting environment in use, but you can be confident when you observe a DNS like the one below: That there isn't any cloud hosting service. This sort of DNS shows that the web hosting platform is one-server-based. Perchance it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server hosting solution and holds more than ninety-eight percent market share. In cPanel's case, one single physical machine tackles all web hosting services (web, e-mail, DNS, databases, FTP, web hosting Control Panel(s), website files, etc.).

Remote File Storage - The Twisted Description of Cloud Website Hosting.

So, a cloud website hosting service is not limited just to a remote file storage service, as multiple web hosting distributors wish it were. Unluckily for them, if that were the case, the majority of the file hosting corporations would have been referred to as cloud web hosting ones a long time back! They are not classified since they distribute file hosting services, not cloud hosting. The file-hosting platform appears very plain compared to the web hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud hosting platform. It cannot be because it's simply one tiny fraction of the entire cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be encountered in the cloud web hosting platform: the Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the mail cloud and... in the upcoming future, perhaps several new clouds we presently are not acquainted with will appear unexpectedly.
