What Does Cloud Website Hosting Stand for?
In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of high-end servers. Each different service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting fraud. Very common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting traders
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must create a custom hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting Tech, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
