What is Cloud Web Hosting?

Reseller web site hosting and "THE BIG CLOUD"

At the moment, almost each and every hosting and reseller web hosting company speculates with the slogan "cloud hosting". Actually, the hosting vendors availing of an authentic cloud web hosting platform are probably less than the fingers of your both hands. That's a fact. Why is it like that? Because it's damn troublesome to make a real cloud webspace hosting system. Firstly, you need to have the correct persons. In the second place, it takes years for them to establish the cloud webspace hosting system. Finally, it calls for lots of cash. Piles of cash. Not every programmer or system administrator can be involved in an enterprise like this one...

Several clouds in the clear web space hosting horizon

Mull over that: how many hybrid car makers are out there? Toyota was the original trailblazer of the mass production of hybrid electric vehicles. Began almost a decade ago. Recollecting anyone else? Huh? Mass production? Come on. Attempt once more. Nissan lately has joined the company... going straightway electric with the Leaf prototype. So, let's go back to cloud webspace hosting... It appears to us, the entire webspace hosting horizon is clear, with very tiny clouds around (probably only several). :-)

cPanel site hosting vs CLOUD WEBSPACE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller hosting vendors in existence provide authentic cloud web hosting services? Let's not forget, cPanel was invented for and still works only on a single hosting server. In no less than ninety nine point ninety nine percent of the cPanel installations in the world, cPanel runs on a single web hosting server. In short, the cPanel shared web hosting solution is a one-server-does-it-all sort of a hosting platform. All data storage, e-mail, database, FTP, site hosting CP, DNS, etc. services are being carried out at one and the same time on a single web server.

One-server website hosting systems: the queue issue

Here's an illustration: it's like running eight software programs at the same time on your personal computer. The computer's performance inevitably slows down significantly, due to the fact that now there is a huge queue with requests waiting to be served or carried out (created by these 8 software applications running concurrently). So, when the cPanel webspace hosting reseller firms call the webspace hosting solutions that are being offered "cloud web site hosting-based", it's appropriate to ask them the question: "What sort of cloud are you touching upon?"

The dense smog around the cPanel-based "cloud webspace hosting" solution

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-crazy blokes are speaking of, in fact, to a certain degree, looks like a big mist or a condensed fog. Doubtlessly this is not a cloud, even a tiny one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel hosting companies (maybe just a few) succeed to establish a remote database or DNS server (or servers), and here we go, they instantly proclaim - we are "in the cloud" now. Yeah, right. Is it a nighttime cloud? Because in the daylight we can't distinguish it in the sky!
