Cloud Web Hosting Defined

In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of avant-garde servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, lots of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and CPs are installed.

The lack of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to establish an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at Direct Biz-Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
