What is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of deluxe servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting swindle. Very modern these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies

If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to run on one single web server only. All hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate a custom website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at IDEA MD Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
