What Precisely is Cloud Web Hosting?

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent groups of top-notch web servers. Each single service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, loads of money must be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on a single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source Control Panels

So, you have to construct an in-house built CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Princesage Online Branding, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
