What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent packs of very powerful web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build a custom website hosting CP that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
