What is Cloud Website Hosting?

In general, the real cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of leading edge web servers. Each single service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting deceit. Very common today.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative organization. That is why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must construct an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at Vzone Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
