Cloud Hosting Definition

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of top-quality web servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud hosting hoax. Quite common at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured hosting CPs besides us, at Web Of Friends, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
