What is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual hosts of top-notch web servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions

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. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built CP that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
