What Indeed is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of avant-garde servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise a custom website hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at TronINDEX, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
