What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of cutting-edge servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The substantial cloud web hosting scam. Very modern today.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must invent a custom web hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house built cloud hosting systems with custom made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at MyNetLabs Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
