Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of deluxe servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting scam. Very common now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must create an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Hostcheap, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
