Cloud Hosting Definition
Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of very powerful servers. Each particular service pack creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting hoax. Very popular these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is why the web hosting traders speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to devise an in-house built Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Dino Web Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
