What Indeed is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of very advanced servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The big cloud web hosting scam. Very common now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on a single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house made cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at dagar Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
