What Does Cloud Hosting Denote?
In general, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of top-notch servers. Each particular service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage 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, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The enormous cloud website hosting scam. Quite common these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, loads of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must devise a custom website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Hosting PTC, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
