Cloud Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of very advanced servers. Each specific service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside 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 has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud hosting hoax. Very popular now.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the CP as well.

One server-based CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on a single server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular single-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
