What In Fact is Cloud Web Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate sets of very advanced web servers. Each single service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting trick. Very common today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on a single web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular single-server hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom created cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed Control Panels besides us, at xhosters, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
