Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different sets of very advanced servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting hoax. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based CPs
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to function on one single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
