What is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of very advanced servers. Each different service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The massive cloud web hosting trick. Quite modern today.
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 in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud website hosting systems with in-house built hosting CPs besides us, at Ultimate Web Hosting Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
