What is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of avant-garde web servers. Each different service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting scam. Quite common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house built cloud web hosting systems with custom devised website hosting CPs besides us, at Transforma Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
