What Does Cloud Web Hosting Stand for?

In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual sets of very advanced servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Quite popular now.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, as making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to function on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at NutmegHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
