A Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

Reseller web site hosting and "THE HUGE CLOUD"

At present, virtually each and every hosting and reseller web hosting corporation plays with the slogan "cloud web hosting". As a matter of fact, the webspace hosting service providers working with an authentic cloud web hosting system are presumably less than the fingers of your own two hands. That's an established fact. Why is it like that? Because it's darned complicated to come up with a real cloud webspace hosting platform. To begin with, you need to choose the right people. Second of all, it takes years for them to make the cloud webspace hosting system. Last, but definitely not least, it calls for a lot of cash. Loads of cash. Not every developer or administrator can be part of an enterprise such as this one...

A couple of clouds in the sapphire site hosting horizon

Muse upon that: how many hybrid car builders exist out there? Toyota was the principal trailblazer of the series production of hybrid cars. Began roughly a decade ago. Recalling anyone else? Huh? Mass production? Come on. Attempt once again. Nissan recently has joined the party... going directly electric with the Leaf model. So, let's get back to cloud web site hosting... It seems to us, the whole web hosting sky is sapphire, with very miniature clouds around (perhaps just a few). :-)

cPanel-based site hosting vs CLOUD WEB HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller web hosting distributors out there deliver real cloud web hosting services? Let's not neglect, cPanel was created for and still operates only on one web server. In no less than 99.99% of the cPanel installations in the world, cPanel runs on a single server. In short, the cPanel shared web hosting solution is a one-server-does-it-all kind of a hosting solution. All disk storage, email, database, FTP, web site hosting CP, DNS, etc. tasks are being performed at the same time on a single web hosting server.

Single-server website hosting environments: the queue problem

Here's an example: it's like running 8 software programs simultaneously on your computer. The PC's performance unavoidably slows down noticeably, since now there is an enormous queue with requests waiting to be served or fulfilled (generated by these 8 software programs running at the same time). Thus, when the cPanel-based web hosting reseller service providers dub the web hosting services on offer "cloud hosting-based", it's a good idea to question them: "What type of cloud are you alluding to?"

The dense mist around the cPanel-based "cloud webspace hosting" platform

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-eager folks are touching upon, in actuality, more or less, looks like a big mist or a thick smog. Certainly this is not a cloud, even a small one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel hosting distributors (perchance just several) succeed to configure a remote database or DNS name server (or servers), and here you are, they directly announce - we are "in the cloud" already. Yeah, right. Is it a night cloud? Because during the day we can't view it in the sky!
