What Actually is Cloud Website Hosting?

Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of avant-garde web servers. Each single service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service’s load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Very common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the “cloud web hosting corporations” speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let’s ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based “cloud” web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let’s examine what the cloud problems are. So, it’s quite improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That’s a great drawback.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren’t any open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you must make one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based Control Panels

Contemporary hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must construct a custom website hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hostrina Kenya, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That’s excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there… and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue… and almost unclouded!
