What Does Cloud Hosting Represent?

In general, the actual cloud hosting platform serves different web hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of top-quality servers. Each separate service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Quite common today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable examples of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at St8forward Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
