Cloud Website Hosting Unmasked
Actually, the actual cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of top-notch servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage 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, and so on. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The immense cloud hosting hoax. Quite 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 very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. This is why the hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on one web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must create a custom hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom manufactured CPs besides us, at Permanent Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
