What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of avant-garde servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 make the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the CP too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on a single server only. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed website hosting CPs besides us, at Papua Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
