Cloud Website Hosting Description
Actually, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of top-quality web servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The massive cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread today.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based hosting CPs
Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single web server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to establish an in-house built Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Easy Host Way, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
