Definition of Cloud Website Hosting

Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual stacks of very advanced servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting deceit. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source Control Panels

So, you have to devise a custom hosting CP that will run perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of custom constructed cloud website hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at iMatrix ICT Group, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
