What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different hosts of leading edge web servers. Each single service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to devise a custom hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of custom set up cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting Egypt, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
