What Actually is Cloud Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various web hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Very common at present.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that 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 supervising organization. This is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must make an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom made cloud web hosting systems with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
