What Exactly is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-notch web servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is why the hosting firms speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Consultingforge Hosting Ltd., are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
