What is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of very advanced web servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be invested too. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to establish an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
