Description of Cloud Web Hosting

Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of deluxe web servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting swindle. Quite widespread at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based hosting CPs

Today's popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on one server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise a custom website hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at AppDome Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
