What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?

Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual packs of high-end web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at the moment.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these given one-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at AtmoVantage, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
