Cloud Web Hosting Explanation

Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The great cloud website hosting deceit. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom created cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at K-Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
