Cloud Website Hosting Definition

Actually, the real cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent groups of leading edge servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, many web servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must make an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
