Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of very advanced web servers. Each different service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one single web server only. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed CPs besides us, at PC021 Hosting solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
