What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of high-end web servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The immense cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is why the website hosting companies speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom website hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at MarkTel Corporation, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
