What Exactly is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual sets of high-end servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting swindle. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based CPs

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on a single web server only. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must make a custom web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good examples of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Mighty India Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
