What is Cloud Hosting?
Actually, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-quality servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The substantial cloud hosting swindle. Very modern now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the Control Panel as well.
Single server-based CPs
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with custom manufactured Control Panels besides us, at a-spps, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
