Definition of Cloud Website Hosting

Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of leading edge servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The huge cloud hosting fraud. Quite common these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting traders

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source CP GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of custom built cloud web hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Web Hosting : Professional Web Hosting from Up-Hostidc.Com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
