Cloud Hosting Unmasked

Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of very powerful web servers. Each individual service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting trick. Very widespread today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must invent a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at BigBMC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
