What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?

In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of high-end web servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Very common nowadays.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, lots of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these given one-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Atkotech Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
