What Actually is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of top-quality servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The big cloud website hosting scam. Very popular at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based CPs
Today's popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must build an in-house built website hosting CP that will run perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house constructed Control Panels besides us, at transcom-magichost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
