Explanation of Cloud Website Hosting
Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of leading edge servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The colossal cloud website hosting fraud. Quite widespread now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of money must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must develop a custom web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house made cloud web hosting systems with custom built hosting CPs besides us, at Crozland Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
