What Actually is Cloud Web Hosting?
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves separate web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different packs of very powerful web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The immense cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread today.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom invented cloud website hosting systems with custom developed hosting Control Panels besides us, at lumenhost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
