A few clouds in the cloudless web hosting sky
Reflect on this: how many hybrid car makers exist out there? Toyota was the primary pioneer of the serial production of hybrid electric vehicles. Started roughly ten years ago. Recollecting anyone else? Huh? Serial production? Come on. Try once more. Nissan lately has joined the band... going straightway electric with the Leaf model. So, let's return to cloud web hosting... It seems to us, the whole site hosting horizon is clear, with very miniature clouds around (perhaps only a few). :-)
cPanel web page hosting versus CLOUD WEB HOSTING
How many of the cPanel-based reseller web hosting providers in existence supply actual cloud web hosting services? Let's not ignore, cPanel was constructed for and still runs exclusively on one single hosting server. In no less than ninety nine point ninety nine percent of the cPanel installations in the world, cPanel works on one single web server. In short, the cPanel shared web hosting platform is a one-single-web-server-does-it-all sort of a hosting platform. All storage, e-mail, database, File Transfer Protocol, webspace hosting CP, DNS, etc. services are being performed at the very same time on a single server.
Single-server web hosting systems: the queue issue
Here's an illustration: it's like running eight software programs at one and the same time on your personal computer. The PC's performance unavoidably slows down dramatically, because of the fact that now there is a vast queue with tasks waiting to be served or executed (initiated by these eight software applications running at the very same time). So, when the cPanel-based web space hosting reseller suppliers dub the webspace hosting services on offer "cloud web page hosting-based", it's appropriate to question them: "What sort of cloud are you hinting at?"
The heavy mist around the cPanel-based "cloud website hosting" platform
This so-called "cloud" these cPanel-devoted folks are speaking of, in fact, more or less, looks like a big haze or a condensed smog. Certainly this is not a cloud, even a petit one. In the best case, some of the cPanel hosting vendors (perchance only several) manage to establish a remote database or DNS server (or servers), and here you are, they rapidly profess - we are "in the cloud" now. Yeah, right. Is it a nighttime cloud? Because in the daytime we can't discern it in the sky!
