Cloud Website Hosting Definition

Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different packs of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail 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 individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting system.

The substantial cloud website hosting hoax. Very widespread these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. That is why the hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at Red Rock Hosts, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
