What is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various website hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual hosts of top-notch web servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting swindle. Very common today.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on a single web server solely. All hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source Control Panels

So, you must build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at GEC RACK - Best Enterprise Web And Cloud Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
