What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate bunches of very powerful web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The massive cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern these days.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with custom built website hosting CPs besides us, at 212hosting.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
