Definition of Cloud Website Hosting

In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different bunches of top-quality servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting trick. Quite common today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on one server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting CPs besides us, at Social Stream ME, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
