How Cloud Website Hosting Operates
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of avant-garde web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service’s load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the “cloud website hosting wholesalers” speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let’s check how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based “cloud” web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let’s explore what the cloud problems are. So, it’s quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, loads of money has to be invested too. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That’s an immense downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren’t any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren’t any open source website hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today’s popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to develop a custom web hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at F2 WEB HOSTING, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That’s excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there… and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue… and nearly cloudless!
