What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on different packs of top-quality servers. Each single service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage 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 different service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting deceit. Very common now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must devise a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made web hosting CPs besides us, at VastGIG, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
