Cloud Website Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent groups of very advanced web servers. Each different service set generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must 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 web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is why the hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom created hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
