Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of very advanced servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested too. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the website hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to develop an in-house built web hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed CPs besides us, at Cyber 16, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
