What Exactly is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the real cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of deluxe servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The massive cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
