Description of Cloud Website Hosting
Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual groups of cutting-edge web servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, many web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate an in-house built CP that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate instances of custom created cloud website hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Billixx LLC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
