Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves different web hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of deluxe servers. Each single service pack creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting hoax. Very popular these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must make an in-house built Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at HostMe4Life, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
