What Indeed is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of very advanced web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to devise a custom CP that will perform perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at KiranSoft Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
