What is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of high-end servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality 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 website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly 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 merchandisers

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent a custom website hosting CP that will function impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at 5D Domain's and Hosting VPS Web Developer and Business Service's, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
