What Indeed is Cloud Web Hosting?
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent hosts of leading edge web servers. Each different service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The massive cloud web hosting deceit. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to function on one web server only. All hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom web hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at myhypercloud.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
