Definition of Cloud Hosting

In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of high-end web servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting trick. Quite common these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies

If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.

The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom web hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable instances of custom constructed cloud website hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at E2MP Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

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