Cloud Web Hosting Explained

Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual website hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of cutting-edge servers. Each particular service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. That is why the hosting firms speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to invent an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Genius Monster Network, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
