What Does Cloud Web Hosting Mean?

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of top-notch web servers. Each single service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting deceit. Very modern today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

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

One server-based Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must build an in-house built CP that will perform flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house made website hosting CPs besides us, at Global Pro Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
