What Does Cloud Web Hosting Denote?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various web hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of top-quality servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The mammoth cloud website hosting trick. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must create a custom CP that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at MyNetLabs Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
