What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very powerful web servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud hosting hoax. Very modern now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting firm has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

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

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on a single server only. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at City Website Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
