What is Cloud Web Hosting?

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of very advanced web servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud website hosting scam. Quite modern these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single web server solely. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built CP that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable instances of custom invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Sreda Top, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
