What Does Cloud Hosting Signify?
Actually, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of very powerful web servers. Each single service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting hoax. Very common at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be purchased. 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 predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one single server solely. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper instances of in-house developed cloud hosting platforms with custom developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Web iCloud Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
