Cloud Web Hosting Unveiled
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of cutting-edge servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP 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 create the so-called cloud hosting system.
The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at RSPI, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
