Cloud Hosting Definition

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of deluxe web servers. Each separate service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, plenty of money has to be invested too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you must construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud website hosting platforms with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Blue Grape Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
