What Does Cloud Website Hosting Represent?

In general, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual packs of avant-garde web servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority 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 merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good examples of in-house made cloud web hosting solutions with in-house devised CPs besides us, at Go Digital Website, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
