What In Fact is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of cutting-edge servers. Each individual service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space 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, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Very popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up a custom website hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with custom constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Best dedicated server hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
