Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very advanced web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting swindle. Very modern at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no decrees 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 blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting system at hand, in that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, loads of money must be invested too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms

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

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom created hosting Control Panels besides us, at Domain400, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
