What Does Cloud Hosting Represent?
In general, the real cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services like storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of leading edge servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The great cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the hosting business there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory body. This is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many web hosting 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 examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.
The absence of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting CP too.
One server-based CPs
Contemporary website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these specific one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of custom created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at www.vip-host.net, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
