Cloud Website Hosting Definition

In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of avant-garde web servers. Each separate service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting trick. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must build the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Famous hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to make a custom web hosting CP that will run unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at ArtMotion, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
