Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of cutting-edge servers. Each different service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the website hosting CP too.

One server-based Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular one-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud web hosting systems with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Web Hosting and Servers, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
