Cloud Website Hosting Defined
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different groups of very powerful servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent too. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The shortage 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 user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the web hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must create a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting and Design for Us, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
