What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of very powerful web servers. Each specific service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The great cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. This is why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, for fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the website hosting CP too.
One server-based hosting CPs
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must construct an in-house built CP that will function impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting solutions with custom constructed hosting CPs besides us, at Darkforged Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
