What Actually is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of high-end web servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP 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 individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to create an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at idomainHOST, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
