Cloud Website Hosting Clarified
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves various web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of high-end web servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The big cloud website hosting hoax. Quite modern these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one single web server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of custom developed cloud hosting platforms with in-house built website hosting CPs besides us, at DomainMonkee.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
