What is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves different web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of very powerful servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting swindle. Very widespread these days.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP tools (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these given one-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at eChromatics, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
