What Does Cloud Website Hosting Signify?

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different hosts of very powerful servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud website hosting swindle. Very common nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. This is why the hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source CP user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up a custom website hosting CP that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house made website hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
