What Does Cloud Web Hosting Signify?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of top-notch servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based hosting CPs
Famous web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one server only. All hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at webspromoted, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
