What Does Cloud Website Hosting Represent?
Actually, the real cloud website hosting solution serves various website hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent stacks of cutting-edge servers. Each single service group 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 function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The mammoth cloud website hosting swindle. Quite widespread today.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. This is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on one web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom devised cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured CPs besides us, at Global Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
