What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of top-quality web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email 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 individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud hosting deceit. Quite modern at present.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the CP as well.

Single server-based Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one single server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised website hosting CPs besides us, at MorrisDNS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
