Cloud Website Hosting Description

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent bunches of top-notch web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common now.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you must invent an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house built hosting Control Panels besides us, at NextLink Cloud, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
