How Does Cloud Hosting Function?
Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different sets of top-quality web servers. Each single service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The colossal cloud hosting scam. Quite modern today.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, plenty of money must be invested too. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the web hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective single-server hosting systems and CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must develop a custom website hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Tropical Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
