What Does Cloud Web Hosting Stand for?

In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of leading edge servers. Each different service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting trick. Quite modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. This is why the hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based CPs

Contemporary Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on a single server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must build an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper instances of in-house devised cloud website hosting systems with in-house built website hosting CPs besides us, at WebCenter Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
