Cloud Web Hosting Explanation
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of very advanced web servers. Each separate service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud hosting fraud. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative organization. This is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be invested too. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one server only. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct a custom CP that will function flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
