What Exactly is Cloud Web Hosting?

Reseller web space hosting and "THE GREAT CLOUD"

These days, practically every web hosting and reseller hosting supplier toys with the watchword "cloud web hosting". In reality, the webspace hosting vendors availing of an authentic cloud web hosting environment are perchance less than the fingers of your own two hands. That's a fact. Why is it like this? Because it's doggone difficult to come up with an authentic cloud site hosting platform. First off, you must uncover the proper persons. Second, it takes years for them to concoct the cloud webspace hosting system. Last, but definitely not least, it calls for a lot of money. Plenty of money. Not every programmer or system administrator can take part in an assignment like this one...

Several clouds in the unclouded web hosting sky

Meditate upon the following: how many hybrid vehicle constructors exist out there? Toyota was the original pioneer of the repetitive flow production of hybrid cars. Commenced nearly ten years ago. Recalling anyone else? Huh? Series production? Come on. Attempt once again. Nissan recently has joined the gang... going straightway electric with the Leaf prototype. So, let's return to cloud webspace hosting... It seems to us, the entire web site hosting horizon is turquoise, with very little clouds around (maybe only a few). :-)

cPanel-based site hosting v CLOUD WEBSITE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller hosting vendors out there deliver authentic cloud web hosting services? Let's not forget, cPanel was invented for and still works only on one server. In no less than ninety nine point ninety nine percent of the cPanel installations in the world, cPanel runs on one hosting server. To make it short, the cPanel shared web hosting platform is a single-server-does-it-all type of a hosting solution. All storage space, mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, web hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. tasks are being served at the same time on one web server.

One-server webspace hosting platforms: the queue predicament

Here's an instance: it's like running 8 software programs at one and the same time on your PC. The personal computer's operation inescapably slows down markedly, owing to the fact that now there is a lengthy queue with tasks awaiting to be served or executed (initiated by these 8 software programs running at the very same time). So, when the cPanel web hosting reseller service providers dub the web space hosting solutions on offer "cloud webspace hosting-based", it's good to question them: "What sort of cloud are you referring to?"

The heavy mist around the cPanel-based "cloud web space hosting" solution

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-ardent fellows are hinting at, in actuality, more or less, seems like a vast haze or a condensed smog. Of course this is not a cloud, even a minute one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel hosting corporations (probably just several) succeed to establish a remote database or DNS server (or servers), and here you are, they swiftly claim - we are "in the cloud" now. Yeah, right. Is it a night cloud? Because during the day we can't view it on the horizon!
