Cloud Hosting Defined

Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different bunches of very advanced web servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one single web server solely. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of in-house set up cloud web hosting solutions with custom created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Dmain Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
