Definition of Cloud Hosting

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of avant-garde web servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of money must be spent too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting systems with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Webmaster Fortress, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
