How Does Cloud Web Hosting Function?
In general, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different packs of high-end servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The substantial cloud website hosting swindle. Very common at the moment.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, many hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, as building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent too. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one single server solely. All hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must set up a custom web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with custom made web hosting CPs besides us, at AEY WEB HOSTING, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
