Description of Cloud Website Hosting

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

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

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the hosting traders speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed CPs besides us, at GoBobby.co, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
