What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent sets of very advanced servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting trick. Very popular now.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper examples of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at LoyB Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
