What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic 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 autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The huge cloud hosting scam. Quite modern at present.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source Control Panels

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud website hosting platforms with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Deploy Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
