Cloud Web Hosting Disclosed
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Very common these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single web server only. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud web hosting platforms with custom devised CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
