Cloud Web Hosting Explanation
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of avant-garde servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative institution. That is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to function on one server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with custom set up hosting CPs besides us, at LCS IT and Media Services Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
