Cloud Web Hosting Explained

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate sets of deluxe servers. Each individual service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting swindle. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at YTS Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
