Description of Cloud Web Hosting
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-notch web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The colossal cloud website hosting swindle. Very widespread at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of money must be invested as well. Tons of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must create an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at Economic Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
