Cloud Website Hosting Description
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves different web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The immense cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. 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 quite improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (running with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make a custom web hosting Control Panel that will operate uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Australia Raidlayer, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
