Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting

Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of leading edge web servers. Each individual service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is why the hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Beyond Real Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
