Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of leading edge servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common today.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at PriceToHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
