Cloud Hosting Definition

Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of top-quality web servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email 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 separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting deceit. Very widespread now.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with in-house made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
