What is Cloud Web Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of top-notch web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting trick. Very widespread these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not an issue, lots of money must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom website hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable examples of in-house constructed cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Lukas Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
