Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each single service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud hosting swindle. Very common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is why the hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to invent an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at OpenHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
