What In Fact is Cloud Hosting?
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of avant-garde web servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP 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 construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The mammoth cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread at present.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is why the hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the web hosting CP too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must create a custom website hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with in-house made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
