Explanation of Cloud Web Hosting
Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent sets of top-notch web servers. Each separate service pack constitutes 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 web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The immense cloud web hosting scam. Very popular now.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Today's popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must make a custom website hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Nom Savior, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
