Cloud Website Hosting Clarified
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves individual web hosting services like data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of very powerful servers. Each single service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The immense cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular now.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be invested too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must make a custom hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured hosting CPs besides us, at Axnhost.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
