The Nature of Cloud Web Hosting

Reseller hosting and "THE GREAT CLOUD"

Nowadays, almost each and every web hosting and reseller hosting distributor speculates with the phrase "cloud hosting". In reality, the web page hosting distributors availing of a real cloud web hosting system are perchance less than the fingers of your two hands. That's a notorious fact. Why is it so? Because it's doggone tough to erect an actual cloud web space hosting system. Firstly, you need to pick the proper persons. Second of all, it takes years for them to devise the cloud webspace hosting platform. Lastly, it involves lots of cash. Piles of cash. Not every programmer or admin can become part an enterprise like this one...

Several clouds in the unclouded website hosting sky

Ruminate about the following: how many hybrid car manufacturers exist out there? Toyota was the primary trailblazer of the series production of hybrid vehicles. Began roughly ten years ago. Recalling anyone else? Huh? Series production? Come on. Attempt again. Nissan recently has joined the group... going directly electric with the Leaf prototype. So, let's go back to cloud website hosting... It appears to us, the whole web space hosting sky is cloudless, with very little clouds around (perhaps only several). :-)

cPanel web hosting v. CLOUD HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller web hosting firms in existence supply authentic cloud web hosting services? Let's not ignore, cPanel was developed for and still works exclusively on one single server. In no less than ninety nine point ninety nine percent of the cPanel installations worldwide, cPanel operates on one hosting server. To make it short, the cPanel shared web hosting solution is a one-single-server-does-it-all sort of a website hosting solution. All disk storage, mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, web space hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. tasks are being performed at the same time on one single hosting server.

Single-server web site hosting platforms: the queue issue

Here's an example: it's like running 8 software programs simultaneously on your PC. The computer's operation unavoidably slows down significantly, owing to the fact that now there is a big queue with requests waiting to be served or completed (generated by these eight software applications running simultaneously). Thus, when the cPanel website hosting reseller service providers dub the webspace hosting solutions that are being offered "cloud hosting-based", it's a good idea to ask them the question: "What sort of cloud are you alluding to?"

The condensed smog around the cPanel-based "cloud hosting" solution

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-zealous boys are quoting, in fact, to a certain degree, appears like a big haze or a thick fog. Of course this is not a cloud, even a small one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel web hosting providers (perchance only a few) manage to come up with a remote database or DNS name server (or servers), and here we go, they instantly state - we are "in the cloud" already. Yeah, right. Is it a night cloud? Because during the day we can't spot it on the horizon!
