Cloud Hosting Definition
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of very advanced servers. Each individual service group produces 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 function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The great cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom website hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of custom devised cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Pifusion X, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest contribution demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
