What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?

Reseller web page hosting and "THE GREAT CLOUD"

Nowadays, virtually each and every hosting and reseller hosting service provider plays with the motto "cloud hosting". As it is, the web page hosting firms working with a genuine cloud web hosting platform are most likely less than the fingers of your both hands. That's a fact. Why is it like this? Because it's darn difficult to develop a real cloud web hosting platform. First, you must find the correct people. Second, it takes years for them to devise the cloud hosting platform. Finally, it requires lots of money. Heaps of cash. Not every developer or administrator can participate in an enterprise such as this one...

A couple of clouds in the azure web page hosting horizon

Meditate upon this: how many hybrid vehicle manufacturers are out there? Toyota was the principal pioneer of the serial production of hybrid electric vehicles. Commenced roughly ten years ago. Recollecting anyone else? Huh? Mass production? Come on. Try once again. Nissan recently has joined the group... going straightway electric with the Leaf model. So, let's return to cloud hosting... It appears to us, the entire web site hosting horizon is unclouded, with very tiny clouds around (perhaps only a few). :-)

cPanel-based hosting versus CLOUD HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller hosting corporations out there provide real cloud hosting services? Let's not neglect, cPanel was developed for and still runs only on one single hosting server. In no less than 99.99% of the cPanel installations worldwide, cPanel operates on a single hosting server. In short, the cPanel shared web hosting solution is a single-server-does-it-all type of a hosting solution. All data storage, electronic mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, website hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. tasks are being executed concurrently on one web server.

Single-server web space hosting solutions: the queue issue

Here's an example: it's like running eight software applications simultaneously on your PC. The PC's performance invariably slows down dramatically, owing to the fact that now there is a great queue with requests waiting to be served or carried out (generated by these 8 software programs running at the very same time). Thus, when the cPanel-based web space hosting reseller companies dub the hosting services that are being offered "cloud web site hosting-based", it's a good idea to ask them the question: "What type of cloud are you quoting?"

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

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-ardent guys are talking about, in fact, more or less, looks like a huge haze or a condensed smog. Certainly this is not a cloud, even a petit one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel hosting vendors (maybe only a few) manage to establish a remote database or DNS name server (or servers), and here you are, they directly state - we are "in the cloud" already. Yeah, right. Is it a night cloud? Because during the day we can't detect it in the sky!
