Description of Cloud Web Hosting
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of high-end servers. Each specific service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is very perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at Rapid Website Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
