Definition of Cloud Hosting

In general, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent bunches of cutting-edge servers. Each specific service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular nowadays.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. That is why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server solely. All web hosting services (storage 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 single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Suitable instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Kaba Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
