What Does Cloud Website Hosting Stand for?
Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves various website hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very powerful servers. Each different service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative institution. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, many servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must make an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at Smooth Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
