What is cloud website hosting indeed? The term 'cloud' appears to be quite modish in today's information technology, World Wide Web and hosting terminology. Nevertheless, just a few in fact are aware of what cloud hosting is. Perchance it is a smart idea to inform yourself about cloud website hosting services. To make a quite long tale concise, we will firstly let you know what cloud hosting is not.

1. Cloud Website Hosting is Not Restricted to a Remote Data Storage Solely.

1. Providing a remote disk storage service, which comprises one data storage appliance for all clients, does not turn any particular hosting vendor into an actual cloud website hosting packages provider.

The cPanel web hosting providers name the ability to distribute remote data storage services a cloud website hosting service. So far there is nothing wrong with the cloud designation, but... we are discussing hosting solutions, not remote disk storage solutions for private or business purposes. There's invariably one "but", isn't there? It's not sufficient to call a shared hosting solution, based on a one-single-server hosting platform, exactly like cPanel, a "cloud website hosting" solution. That's because the other constituents of the whole web hosting platform must be functioning in exactly the same way - this does not apply solely to the remote file storage. The rest of the services entailed in the whole hosting process also need to be remote, separated and "clouded". And that's really hard. Very few hosting firms can truly accomplish it.

2. It Entails Domain Names, Email Accounts, Databases, FTPs, Hosting CPs, and so on.

Cloud website hosting is not confined to a remote disk storage solely. We are discussing a web hosting solution, serving lots of domain names, web sites, email boxes, etc., are we not?

To dub a hosting service a "cloud website hosting" one requires a lot more than offering only remote disk storage mounts (or maybe physical servers). The e-mail server(s) have to be devoted just to the electronic mail connected services. Doing nothing different than these particular assignments. There might be only one single or perchance an entire collection of e-mail servers, depending on the overall load generated. To have a real cloud website hosting solution, the remote database servers should be performing as one, irrespective of their actual number. Doing nothing different. The same goes for the clients' Control Panels, the File Transfer Protocol, and so on.

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

The DNSs (Domain Name Servers) of an authentic cloud website hosting firm will support numerous server farm facility sites on multiple continents.

Here's an illustration of a DNS of an authentic cloud website hosting plans provider:

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

that there isn't any cloud web hosting platform. This type of DNS simply indicates that the hosting platform in use is one-server based. Maybe it's cPanel. cPanel is a one-single-server hosting platform and maintains a 98+ percent market share. In cPanel's case, a single server copes with all hosting services (web, mail, DNS, databases, FTP, hosting Control Panel(s), files, etc.).

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

So, a cloud website hosting solution is not confined just to a remote file storage solution, as multiple hosting corporations wish it was. Unluckily for them, if that was the case, the majority of the file hosting firms would have been referred to as cloud web hosting ones a long time back! They are not classified as such, since they merely supply file hosting solutions, not cloud web hosting solutions. The file web hosting platform is indeed very simple, in comparison with the hosting platform. The remote disk storage platform is not a cloud web hosting platform. It cannot be, as it's only one simple part of the entire cloud web hosting platform. There's plenty more to be encountered in the cloud hosting platform: the Control Panel cloud, the database clouds (MySQL, PostgreSQL), the Domain Name Server cloud, the File Transfer Protocol cloud, the electronic mail cloud and... in the not too distant future, perhaps a couple of new clouds we presently are not aware of will turn up unexpectedly.
