Cloud Hosting Clarified

In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual sets of very powerful servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web 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 hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common now.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one web server solely. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must set up a custom hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at MTBN.NET, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
