What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of top-quality servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The enormous cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper instances of custom constructed cloud website hosting platforms with custom devised web hosting CPs besides us, at Host It Better, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
