Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual stacks of avant-garde servers. Each different service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a 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 form the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to develop an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house made cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
