Cloud Hosting Revealed

Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of top-quality web servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread these days.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. That is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent as well. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must make an in-house built Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at The Great Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
