Cloud Website Hosting Definition

Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of leading edge web servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, numerous web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent too. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one web server exclusively. All web 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 server where these particular single-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must build an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Discount Hosting Store, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
