What is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the real cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good examples of custom built cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at hostleonard, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
