How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?
In general, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of leading edge web servers. Each individual service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting swindle. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative institution. This is why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one single server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom web hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made web hosting CPs besides us, at PIXELSPECK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
