What Does Cloud Hosting Stand for?
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of high-end web servers. Each particular service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very common today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built hosting CP that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of custom devised cloud hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
