What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous groups of high-end web servers. Each particular service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, loads of money must be spent as well. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must create an in-house built web hosting CP that will work perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of custom created cloud website hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Nickam Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
