Description of Cloud Web Hosting
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent packs of top-quality web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk storage 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The substantial cloud website hosting deceit. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to develop a custom web hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of in-house created cloud hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at HMAHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
