What Exactly is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one web server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Asterhost.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
