Cloud Hosting Explanation
Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of very powerful servers. Each single service set makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal 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 stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Very popular at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The deficiency 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 devices (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good examples of custom made cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed CPs besides us, at Hostingpreneur.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
