What is Cloud Website Hosting?

In general, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different hosts of leading edge servers. Each individual service set generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website 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 hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common today.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is why the web hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to build an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at 6xCloud, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
