Cloud Web Hosting Explanation
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of high-end web servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting system.
The colossal cloud web hosting scam. Quite widespread now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web servers have to be paid for. 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 problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on a single web server only. All hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must invent an in-house built hosting CP that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Proper instances of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Mishka Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal contribution needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
