What Does Cloud Hosting Mean?

In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of very powerful servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage 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 separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Quite popular at present.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on one server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source Control Panels

So, you must devise a custom hosting CP that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Spider Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
