Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of high-end web servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting deceit. Quite modern today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Small Business Network Administrators, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
