What Does Cloud Hosting Denote?

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of very powerful servers. Each specific service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be invested too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on one single server only. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house built cloud web hosting platforms with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting Webs UK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
