What Indeed is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of very powerful servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The substantial cloud website hosting deceit. Very common now.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, loads of money must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one single web server only. All hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular single-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must develop a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom invented cloud website hosting systems with in-house invented website hosting CPs besides us, at Hitash Consults Limited, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
