What Exactly is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of very advanced web servers. Each different service pack creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic 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 construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. That is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made hosting CPs besides us, at Creative Web Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
