What is Cloud Website Hosting?

In general, the real cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of top-quality web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting swindle. Very modern these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source CPs

So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at G Designz, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

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