Description of Cloud Website Hosting
In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of deluxe web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting trick. Very modern now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. That is why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the website hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you must fabricate an in-house built Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Helios Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
