Cloud Hosting Definition

In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different packs of very powerful servers. Each particular service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud hosting fraud. Very common today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. This is why the hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

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

The shortage of open source hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom invented cloud hosting systems with custom built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Best Hostin, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
