What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate bunches of deluxe web servers. Each particular service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be spent too. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must make the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must devise a custom hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting CPs besides us, at The Big Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
