What is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of deluxe web servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising body. This is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with in-house constructed CPs besides us, at , are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
