Description of Cloud Hosting
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud 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 CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread today.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they actually can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, numerous web servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at Xen Effect Studio, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
