Cloud Website Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of top-quality web servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting hoax. Very widespread at present.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting solutions with in-house set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hosting PTC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding 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 turquoise... and practically cloudless!
