How Does Cloud Web Hosting Function?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of avant-garde servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is why the hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source CP interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct a custom CP that will perform unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at Nutiweb Design, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
