What is Cloud Website Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent groups of top-quality servers. Each single service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, numerous web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested too. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based CPs
Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper instances of custom invented cloud website hosting platforms with custom devised website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Shosho Mobile, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
