What Does Cloud Website Hosting Signify?

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very powerful web servers. Each single service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web 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 web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested too. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source CP devices (operating with the cloud hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source Control Panels

So, you have to devise a custom website hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at EtqanIS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
