What Does Cloud Web Hosting Signify?

Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different stacks of very advanced web servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you must build a custom Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
