What is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves different website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual sets of top-quality servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread today.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must build a custom website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good instances of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
