How Cloud Hosting Operates
Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent groups of leading edge servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is the reason why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Famous hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to build a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured web hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
