Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of very powerful web servers. Each individual service set generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage 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 autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with custom developed hosting CPs besides us, at iwebclouds Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
