What Precisely is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of leading edge web servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Quite popular now.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. That is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the website hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one single server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good instances of in-house constructed cloud hosting platforms with in-house constructed hosting CPs besides us, at Zona Informatica, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
