Cloud Website Hosting Definition

Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual sets of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting swindle. Quite common today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Premium Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
