What is Cloud Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves different web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of deluxe servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail 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 autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The enormous cloud web hosting trick. Very popular now.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, many hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one server only. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise a custom CP that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting platforms with custom made hosting CPs besides us, at khmerelite.us, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
