What is Cloud Web Hosting?

Reseller website hosting and "THE BIG CLOUD"

Now, virtually each and every hosting and reseller web hosting provider toys with the watchword "cloud hosting". In fact, the site hosting suppliers working with an authentic cloud web hosting platform are perchance less than the fingers of your both hands. That's an established fact. Why is it like that? Because it's doggone difficult to set up an actual cloud webspace hosting platform. First of all, you need to uncover the suitable individuals. Second, it takes years for them to erect the cloud webspace hosting platform. Finally, it takes lots of money. Piles of money. Not every programmer or admin can be involved in a task such as this one...

A few clouds in the unclouded hosting sky

Reflect on that: how many hybrid car companies are out there? Toyota was the primary trailblazer of the repetitive flow production of hybrid electric vehicles. Began nearly a decade ago. Recalling anyone else? Huh? Series production? Come on. Try again. Nissan lately has joined the pack... going straightway electric with the Leaf prototype. So, let's get back to cloud web space hosting... It seems to us, the whole web site hosting sky is unclouded, with very little clouds around (perhaps just a few). :-)

cPanel-based site hosting v CLOUD WEBSITE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller web hosting providers in existence supply real cloud web hosting services? Let's not forget, cPanel was made for and still works only on one hosting server. In no less than 99.99 percent of the cPanel installations worldwide, cPanel works on a single web hosting server. In short, the cPanel shared web hosting platform is a one-single-web-server-does-it-all sort of a hosting solution. All disk space, electronic mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, web hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. services are being executed concurrently on one hosting server.

Single-server website hosting solutions: the queue problem

Here's an example: it's like running 8 software applications at one and the same time on your personal computer. The computer's operation unavoidably slows down significantly, because now there is an enormous queue with tasks waiting to be served or executed (initiated by these eight software programs running simultaneously). Thus, when the cPanel web page hosting reseller firms call the hosting solutions that are being offered "cloud web site hosting-based", it's a good idea to ask them the question: "What sort of cloud are you alluding to?"

The condensed fog around the cPanel-based "cloud web site hosting" platform

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-fanatical fellows are quoting, in actuality, more or less, looks like an enormous mist or a condensed fog. Undoubtedly this is not a cloud, even a small one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel hosting firms (perchance only a few) manage to come up with a remote database or DNS name server (or servers), and here we go, they swiftly assert - we are "in the cloud" now. Yeah, right. Is it a night cloud? Because in the daytime we can't detect it on the horizon!
