What Does Cloud Web Hosting Mean?

In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves various web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The great cloud web hosting trick. Quite modern nowadays.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, lots of money must be invested too. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based CPs

Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop a custom CP that will operate impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Innovative Hosting Services Limited, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
