What In Fact is Cloud Website Hosting?
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of leading edge servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The enormous cloud hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested too. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up a custom website hosting CP that will work impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting and Design for Us, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
