What Actually is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of leading edge servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud web hosting trick. Very modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud website hosting systems with custom constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Innovative Technology Concepts, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
