What is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of very advanced web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting trick. Quite widespread nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to make an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting systems with custom invented Control Panels besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
