Definition of Cloud Website Hosting

In general, the actual cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of leading edge web servers. Each particular service pack creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom made hosting CPs besides us, at Magnolia Sweets Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
