The Essence of Cloud Web Hosting

Reseller web space hosting and "THE GREAT CLOUD"

These days, virtually every hosting and reseller web hosting firm speculates with the expression "cloud web hosting". In fact, the website hosting firms working with an authentic cloud web hosting environment are perhaps less than the fingers of your both hands. That's a notorious fact. Why is it so? Because it's damn hard to develop a real cloud site hosting platform. Firstly, you have to find the appropriate individuals. In the second place, it takes years for them to devise the cloud site hosting system. Last, but not least, it takes a lot of money. Heaps of money. Not every developer or admin can be part of a venture such as this one...

A couple of clouds in the azure website hosting sky

Think about the following: how many hybrid vehicle manufacturers exist out there? Toyota was the initial pioneer of the repetitive flow production of hybrid electric vehicles. Commenced almost ten years ago. Recalling anyone else? Huh? Series production? Come on. Attempt once more. Nissan recently has joined the pack... going straightway electric with the Leaf prototype. So, let's get back to cloud web page hosting... It seems to us, the entire web space hosting sky is cloudless, with very tiny clouds around (maybe just a few). :-)

cPanel webspace hosting versus CLOUD WEB SITE HOSTING

How many of the cPanel-based reseller web hosting companies out there supply actual cloud web hosting services? Let's not omit, cPanel was devised for and still works exclusively on a single web hosting server. In no less than 99.99% of the cPanel installations in the world, cPanel runs on one web hosting server. To make it short, the cPanel shared web hosting solution is a one-web-server-does-it-all sort of a web hosting platform. All disk space, electronic mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, web site hosting CP, DNS, etc. tasks are being performed at the very same time on one web server.

Single-server web page hosting environments: the queue predicament

Here's an example: it's like running eight software programs at the same time on your personal computer. The computer's operation unavoidably slows down dramatically, because now there is a lengthy queue with requests awaiting to be served or completed (generated by these eight software applications running concurrently). Thus, when the cPanel-based web hosting reseller service providers call the webspace hosting services on offer "cloud webspace hosting-based", it's a good idea to enquire: "What sort of cloud are you alluding to?"

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

This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-ardent folks are referring to, in fact, to a certain extent, appears like an enormous haze or a heavy fog. Undoubtedly this is not a cloud, even a tiny one. In the best-case scenario, some of the cPanel web hosting firms (probably only a few) succeed to set up a remote database or DNS server (or servers), and here we go, they rapidly announce - we are "in the cloud" already. Yeah, right. Is it a nighttime cloud? Because in the daytime we can't view it in the sky!
