How Does Cloud Web Hosting Operate?

Reseller web site hosting and "THE GREAT CLOUD"

Now, nearly each and every hosting and reseller web hosting distributor plays with the byword "cloud hosting". In reality, the hosting firms availing of a genuine cloud web hosting system are probably less than the fingers of your both hands. That's an established fact. Why is it like this? Because it's damn hard to set up a real cloud website hosting system. Firstly, you need to select the appropriate persons. In the second place, it takes years for them to concoct the cloud webspace hosting platform. Lastly, it involves lots of money. Plenty of money. Not every developer or administrator can participate in a project such as this one...

Several clouds in the bright webspace hosting horizon

Mull over the following: how many hybrid electric vehicle constructors exist out there? Toyota was the initial trailblazer of the series production of hybrid vehicles. Commenced about 10 years ago. Recalling anyone else? Huh? Serial production? Come on. Attempt again. Nissan lately has joined the company... going straightway electric with the Leaf model. So, let's go back to cloud webspace hosting... It appears to us, the entire web page hosting horizon is bright, with very small clouds around (perchance just a few). :-)

cPanel-based website hosting vs. CLOUD WEB SITE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller web hosting suppliers out there deliver real cloud web hosting services? Let's not forget, cPanel was concocted for and still operates exclusively on one web hosting server. In no less than ninety nine point ninety nine percent of the cPanel installations worldwide, cPanel operates on one single web server. To make it short, the cPanel shared web hosting platform is a single-web-server-does-it-all type of a website hosting solution. All disk space, mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, site hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. services are being executed at the same time on a single web hosting server.

Single-server webspace hosting systems: the queue predicament

Here's an illustration: it's like running 8 software programs at one and the same time on your personal computer. The PC's operation unavoidably slows down noticeably, because now there is an enormous queue with tasks awaiting to be served or carried out (created by these eight software programs running at the same time). Thus, when the cPanel web space hosting reseller companies dub the webspace hosting solutions 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 referring to?"

The thick haze around the cPanel-based "cloud hosting" platform

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-obsessed guys are touching upon, in actuality, to a certain degree, looks like a huge mist or a thick fog. Doubtlessly this is not a cloud, even a petit one. In the best case, some of the cPanel hosting companies (perchance just a few) manage to create a remote database or DNS name server (or servers), and here you are, they directly proclaim - we are "in the cloud" already. Yeah, right. Is it a night cloud? Because during the day we can't watch it on the horizon!
