What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one web server where these particular single-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
