What is Cloud Web Hosting?

In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of top-notch web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web 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 different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common nowadays.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. This is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at Host2net Limited, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
