Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each different service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting hoax. Quite modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is the reason why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge problem.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on one single server only. All hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house made web hosting CPs besides us, at SigmaInfinity, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
