Cloud Website Hosting Description
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-notch web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 constitute the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting scam. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting firm has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Contemporary CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server only. All hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to make an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting systems with custom made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at NATURAL HOST SOLUTIONS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
