What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of top-quality servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should 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 web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be invested too. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these respective one-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at 711vps, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
