Cloud Hosting Definition

In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent sets of very advanced web servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web 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 separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested too. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent an in-house built Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with custom built CPs besides us, at Host705, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
