How Does Cloud Website Hosting Function?
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent hosts of deluxe servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting scam. Very popular now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper examples of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at ChStack, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
