What Actually is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of very powerful web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting swindle. Very modern now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

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

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on a single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these given single-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop a custom web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of in-house built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created hosting CPs besides us, at Hepsia.Co, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
