What Indeed is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves individual hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of top-notch web servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The gigantic cloud hosting hoax. Very modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud website hosting platforms with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at RSPI, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
