What Does Cloud Website Hosting Stand for?
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of top-quality web servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting trick. Quite popular now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. This is why the hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one web server only. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Cyberdyne Communications Inc, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
