What Does Cloud Website Hosting Mean?

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent groups of very powerful web servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting swindle. Very common now.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source Control Panels

So, you must establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of custom set up cloud hosting platforms with in-house invented website hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
