What Does Cloud Hosting Denote?
Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of high-end web servers. Each specific service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The big cloud website hosting fraud. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. That is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source Control Panels
So, you have to invent a custom website hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good instances of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Publisher Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
