How Does Cloud Web Hosting Work?
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate sets of very advanced web servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative body. This is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, lots of money must be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Website Web Hosting Services International, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
