What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of top-notch web servers. Each single service set makes 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 perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, as making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be invested as well. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the website hosting CP too.

One server-based CPs

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper instances of custom invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured CPs besides us, at DNMark.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
