What Does Cloud Web Hosting Mean?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of cutting-edge servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The gigantic cloud hosting hoax. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to establish a custom Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting platforms with in-house developed CPs besides us, at MamaTech, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
