Cloud Website Hosting Explanation
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of very powerful servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The enormous cloud website hosting scam. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, lots of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on one web server solely. All hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must develop a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up web hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
