Cloud Hosting Defined
Essentially, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of top-quality servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space 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 autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based Control Panels
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must establish a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Appropriate examples of custom invented cloud web hosting solutions with custom built website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Infosoft Technologies, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
