What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of very advanced web servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email 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 autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting hoax. Quite popular now.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hostaguar, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
