Cloud Website Hosting Description
What is cloud website hosting actually? The term 'cloud' seems to be very trendy in today's IT, World Wide Web and web hosting jargon. Even so, only a select few actually can say what cloud hosting is. Probably it is a sensible idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To make a very lengthy tale concise, we will first let you in on what cloud hosting is not.
1. Cloud Website Hosting is Not Restricted to a Remote Data Storage Exclusively.
1. Furnishing a remote file storage solution, which involves one file storage tool for all clients, does not transform any particular hosting distributor into an actual cloud website hosting firm.
The cPanel hosting companies dub the ability to furnish remote disk storage solutions a cloud website hosting service. Up till now there is nothing bad about the cloud classification, but... we are discussing hosting services, not remote data storage services for individual or business needs. There's constantly one "but", isn't there? It's not enough to call a shared web hosting service, driven by a single-server web hosting environment, precisely like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" solution. That's because the other components of the whole hosting platform must be functioning in exactly the same way - this does not refer solely to the remote data storage. The other services involved in the entire hosting process also have to be remote, isolated and "clouded". And that's extremely difficult. A very scanty number of hosting companies can actually do it.
2. It Includes Domain Names, Electronic Mails, Databases, File Transfer Protocols, Control Panels, and so on.
Cloud website hosting is not limited to a remote disk storage only. We are discussing a hosting service, serving numerous domain names, web portals, e-mail accounts, etc., are we not?
To name a web hosting service a "cloud website hosting" one demands a lot more than providing plainly remote data storage mounts (or possibly servers). The electronic mail server(s) need to be dedicated just to the mail connected services. Executing nothing different than these given procedures. There might be only one or possibly a whole set of e-mail servers, based on the total load generated. To have an actual cloud website hosting service, the remote database servers should be functioning as one, regardless of their actual amount. Executing nothing different. The same goes for the customers' web hosting Control Panels, the FTP, etc.
3. There are Cloud Domain Name Servers (DNSs) as well.
The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of an actual cloud website hosting provider will support numerous datacenter facility locations on multiple continents.
Here's an illustration of a Domain Name Server of an actual cloud website hosting distributor:
If such a DNS is supplied by your hosting solutions provider, it's not a guarantee that there is a cloud web hosting platform in use, but you can definitely be confident when you notice a Domain Name Server like the one underneath:
that there isn't any cloud hosting platform. This sort of DNS plainly shows that the web hosting platform in use is one-server based. Perhaps it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-server hosting solution and holds a market share of more than ninety eight percent. In cPanel's case, a single physical machine tackles all web hosting services (web, mail, DNS, databases, File Transfer Protocol, web hosting CP(s), web site files, and so on).
Remote File Storage - The Twisted Explanation of Cloud Website Hosting.
So, a cloud website hosting solution is not confined solely to a remote data storage solution, as numerous web hosting companies wish it was. Unfortunately for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file web hosting distributors would have been categorized as cloud hosting ones a long time ago! They are not classified as such, since they simply furnish file web hosting services, not cloud hosting solutions. The file hosting platform appears really very plain, in comparison with the hosting platform. The remote file storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, since it's simply one small fragment of the entire cloud hosting platform. There's a lot more to be encountered in the cloud web hosting platform: the web hosting Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the DNS cloud, the FTP cloud, the email cloud and... in the not too distant future, possibly a bunch of brand new clouds we presently are not acquainted with will appear out of the blue.
