Definition of Cloud Hosting

Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the website hosting CP too.

One server-based CPs

Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Cheap Hosted, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
