What is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of leading edge web servers. Each single service group produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting deceit. Quite popular today.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must establish a custom CP that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper instances of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Supernet Domains, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
