What Indeed is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Very common nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, many web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on a single server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source Control Panels

So, you must establish a custom web hosting CP that will work impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house manufactured cloud hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at uesecloud, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
