Cloud Website Hosting Definition

Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent hosts of very advanced servers. Each particular service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud hosting swindle. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on a single web server only. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper examples of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
