What Does Cloud Hosting Stand for?

Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of leading edge servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting hoax. Very common now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. This is the reason why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the web hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one single web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at AX Cloud, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
