Definition of Cloud Web Hosting

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent groups of very powerful servers. Each single service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The great cloud website hosting swindle. Quite popular now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative institution. That is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting CPs besides us, at TronINDEX, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
