Definition of Cloud Hosting

Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of deluxe servers. Each separate service set forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house set up web hosting CPs besides us, at Dornan Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
