What Indeed is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different stacks of top-notch servers. Each single service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern 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 in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, a lot of money must be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based CPs

Contemporary hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate examples of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at TheComputerBin, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
