Cloud Web Hosting Unmasked
Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of top-quality web servers. Each specific service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The immense cloud web hosting deceit. Quite modern today.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with custom built Control Panels besides us, at Cloud Service, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
