What Precisely is Cloud Web Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of high-end web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The substantial cloud website hosting hoax. Very modern these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Domain Control Network, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
