Explanation of Cloud Hosting
Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of high-end web servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom web hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house constructed cloud website hosting systems with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at CGP Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
