An Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting

Reseller site hosting and "THE BIG CLOUD"

Now, nearly each and every web hosting and reseller web hosting service provider toys with the maxim "cloud hosting". In fact, the web page hosting firms availing of a genuine cloud web hosting platform are maybe less than the fingers of your own two hands. That's a notorious fact. Why is it like that? Because it's damn difficult to devise a real cloud hosting system. First off, you must find the appropriate people. Second, it takes years for them to erect the cloud webspace hosting system. Last, but definitely not least, it calls for lots of money. Piles of cash. Not every developer or sysadmin can become part a venture like this one...

Several clouds in the clear hosting sky

Think about that: how many hybrid vehicle corporations exist out there? Toyota was the oldest pioneer of the repetitive flow production of hybrid cars. Began about a decade ago. Recollecting anyone else? Huh? Mass production? Come on. Try once more. Nissan lately has joined the group... going directly electric with the Leaf model. So, let's go back to cloud site hosting... It appears to us, the whole web page hosting horizon is bright, with very small clouds around (perchance just several). :-)

cPanel-based site hosting versus CLOUD WEBSITE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller hosting service providers in existence offer authentic cloud web hosting services? Let's not neglect, cPanel was made for and still operates exclusively on a single web server. In no less than 99.99% of the cPanel installations in the world, cPanel operates on one web hosting server. To cut a long story short, the cPanel shared web hosting solution is a one-single-web-server-does-it-all type of a hosting platform. All storage space, mail, database, FTP, website hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. tasks are being executed at the same time on one single web server.

One-server web page hosting platforms: the queue problem

Here's an instance: it's like running 8 software programs concurrently on your PC. The PC's operation unavoidably slows down noticeably, because now there is a great queue with requests awaiting to be served or completed (initiated by these eight software programs running at the same time). Thus, when the cPanel web hosting reseller firms call the web hosting services on offer "cloud web page hosting-based", it's appropriate to enquire: "What sort of cloud are you referring to?"

The dense fog around the cPanel-based "cloud hosting" platform

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-crazy fellows are touching upon, in fact, more or less, appears like an enormous haze or a thick fog. Doubtlessly this is not a cloud, even a tiny one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel hosting companies (perchance just several) manage to come up with a remote database or DNS name server (or servers), and here you are, they swiftly profess - we are "in the cloud" now. Yeah, right. Is it a nighttime cloud? Because in the daytime we can't find it on the horizon!
