Cloud Website Hosting Explanation

In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of deluxe web servers. Each different service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud hosting swindle. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, loads of money must be spent too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single server only. All hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective single-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house made cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up web hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
