What Actually is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of high-end servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Very common today.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of money must be invested as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on a single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must make an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom devised cloud hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at NM-ICT, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
