How Does Cloud Web Hosting Operate?
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of avant-garde servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The gigantic cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular at present.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single server only. All hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house made Control Panels besides us, at YASPE, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
