What Does Cloud Website Hosting Represent?
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves different web hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is why the hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house manufactured cloud hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at kuwait.gr, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
