Description of Cloud Web Hosting
In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of high-end servers. Each different service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one single server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of in-house set up cloud hosting platforms with custom built hosting Control Panels besides us, at Kodohost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
