What Exactly is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of top-quality servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk 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 massive cloud web hosting hoax. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the website hosting CP too.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one single web server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must make a custom hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good instances of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Kiaran IT Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
