What is Cloud Website Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different packs of deluxe servers. Each particular service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. This is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server hosting systems and CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom website hosting CP that will function impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at opnux, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
