Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of very powerful web servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The mammoth cloud hosting trick. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of money must be invested too. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of custom invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at I Services, Inc., are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 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 solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
