What is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of very powerful web servers. Each particular service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. That is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, 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" web hosting wholesalers

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent too. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to invent a custom CP that will work unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting Dara, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
