What Exactly is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent hosts of top-quality servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very common today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

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

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single web server solely. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with custom set up website hosting CPs besides us, at JITTY, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
