What Indeed is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual packs of deluxe servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting trick. Very popular these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one web server only. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house manufactured cloud hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at BestPriceHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
