What Actually is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual packs of leading edge web servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Very popular these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative institution. That is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of custom created cloud website hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hostingam, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
