Cloud Website Hosting Description
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves various web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of top-notch web servers. Each single service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP 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 separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting trick. Quite common now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the website hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single server solely. All hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured hosting CPs besides us, at EagleProWeb.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision rates
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
