Cloud Web Hosting Description
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of very powerful servers. Each different service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service’s load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage 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, and so on. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The big cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the “cloud web hosting wholesalers” speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let’s ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based “cloud” website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let’s examine what the cloud complications are. So, it’s quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, loads of money has to be spent as well. Tons of money. What’s more, cPanel is not open source. That’s a huge obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren’t any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you have to develop a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house constructed hosting Control Panels besides us, at iQiHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That’s excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there… and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure… and almost unclouded!
