What is Cloud Website Hosting?

In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of deluxe web servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based CPs

Modern hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with custom created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
