What is Cloud Website Hosting?

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of top-notch web servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash must be spent too. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made website hosting CPs besides us, at Tolentinos IT Solutions - Web hosting and Internet Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
