What Does Cloud Web Hosting Represent?

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of top-quality web servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective one-server hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will function perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of custom created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created CPs besides us, at Happy Hosting UK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
