Cloud Web Hosting Explanation
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of high-end servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The big cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of in-house built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house invented website hosting CPs besides us, at Local Small Business Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
