Cloud Web Hosting Definition

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves different website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on different bunches of top-quality servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud hosting fraud. Very widespread these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the web hosting traders speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based hosting CPs

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

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of custom invented cloud website hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at iDataRack.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
