Cloud Website Hosting Definition
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves individual website hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very powerful servers. Each individual service set produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic 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 separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The colossal cloud hosting trick. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one single server solely. All hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to establish a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud website hosting systems with in-house constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Wise Pro Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
