How Cloud Web Hosting Functions
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of avant-garde servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic 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 different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The enormous cloud website hosting trick. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing body. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one single server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to fabricate a custom hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Digicalporter Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
