A Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

Reseller website hosting and "THE GREAT CLOUD"

At the moment, almost every hosting and reseller web hosting company toys with the saying "cloud hosting". As a matter of fact, the web site hosting corporations using an actual cloud web hosting environment are maybe less than the fingers of your own two hands. That's a notorious fact. Why is it like that? Because it's bloody troublesome to concoct a real cloud hosting system. First of all, you have to find the appropriate persons. Second of all, it takes years for them to construct the cloud web space hosting system. Lastly, it requires lots of cash. Heaps of money. Not every programmer or admin can become part an enterprise like this one...

A couple of clouds in the bright site hosting sky

Contemplate that: how many hybrid vehicle companies exist out there? Toyota was the earliest trailblazer of the repetitive flow production of hybrid cars. Started nearly a decade ago. Recollecting anyone else? Huh? Mass production? Come on. Try once more. Nissan recently has joined the party... going straightway electric with the Leaf prototype. So, let's get back to cloud web site hosting... It appears to us, the whole website hosting horizon is cloudless, with very tiny clouds around (maybe only a few). :-)

cPanel website hosting versus CLOUD SITE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller hosting companies in existence provide actual cloud web hosting services? Let's not ignore, cPanel was invented for and still works exclusively on one single hosting server. In no less than ninety nine point ninety nine percent of the cPanel installations worldwide, cPanel runs on one web server. In brief, the cPanel shared web hosting platform is a single-server-does-it-all sort of a hosting platform. All storage, e-mail, database, FTP, web hosting Control Panel, DNS, etc. services are being performed at the same time on a single web server.

One-server web hosting solutions: the queue issue

Here's an example: it's like running eight software programs at one and the same time on your personal computer. The personal computer's performance inescapably slows down markedly, since now there is an extensive queue with tasks awaiting to be served or fulfilled (initiated by these 8 software programs running at one and the same time). So, when the cPanel webspace hosting reseller vendors dub the web site hosting solutions that are being offered "cloud site hosting-based", it's a good idea to ask them the question: "What type of cloud are you alluding to?"

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

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-zealous fellows are speaking of, in actuality, more or less, seems like a big mist or a dense smog. Doubtlessly this is not a cloud, even a small one. In the best case, some of the cPanel hosting suppliers (maybe just several) manage to create a remote database or DNS server (or servers), and here you are, they rapidly assert - we are "in the cloud" now. Yeah, right. Is it a nighttime cloud? Because during the day we can't detect it on the horizon!
