What Does Cloud Hosting Denote?

Actually, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on different groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each different service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud hosting trick. Very popular now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising body. This is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based CPs

Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you have to make an in-house built hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house made website hosting CPs besides us, at Ultimate Web Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
