What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of custom set up cloud hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting CPs besides us, at Angelionics Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
