How Cloud Website Hosting Operates
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of very powerful web servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The immense cloud hosting deceit. Quite common these days.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. 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 web hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, lots of money must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must create an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at WebDesign4US, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
