What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-quality web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting hoax. Very common today.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on a single server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to devise a custom web hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Supreme BroadBand Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
