What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of leading edge servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The big cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, 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 website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at www.vip-host.net, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
