Cloud Website Hosting Unmasked
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of deluxe web servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The substantial cloud web hosting trick. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud hosting solutions with custom built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at iTech Solution, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
