What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of leading edge servers. Each specific service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Very common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at Domains Depot, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
