How Cloud Hosting Works
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves separate hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of leading edge web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The immense cloud website hosting scam. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, loads of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct a custom web hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good examples of custom invented cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
