What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of avant-garde servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic 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 system.

The immense cloud hosting swindle. Very common at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at BrainChild Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
