What In Fact is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of top-notch servers. Each single service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud website hosting fraud. Quite popular at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. That is why the hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the web hosting CP as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to work on a single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must construct an in-house built CP that will work faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with custom set up web hosting CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision rates

The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
