What Precisely is Cloud Web Hosting?
Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent packs of leading edge web servers. Each particular service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space 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 independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Very widespread these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, 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 basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, many web servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on one single server solely. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom website hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with custom created Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
