Cloud Web Hosting Definition
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of high-end web servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of custom set up cloud hosting solutions with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at CorrectHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
