What Does Cloud Hosting Signify?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The colossal cloud hosting trick. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the website hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to establish an in-house built website hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at CS IT PARK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
