What is Cloud Website Hosting?

Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of high-end servers. Each different service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting trick. Quite common now.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. That is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single web server solely. All hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud hosting solutions with custom invented hosting Control Panels besides us, at Zero Gravity Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to 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 website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
