Definition of Cloud Web Hosting
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of deluxe servers. Each separate service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. This is why the hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house devised cloud hosting platforms with custom set up hosting Control Panels besides us, at East Texas Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
