What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud hosting hoax. Very modern at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority 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 distributors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single server only. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up a custom Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made web hosting CPs besides us, at THEGOGOGO.COM Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
