What is Cloud Web Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of high-end servers. Each individual service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage 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, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Quite modern today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is why the hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on a single web server solely. All hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these specific single-server hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at Netiquette, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
