Cloud Hosting Explained

In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of top-quality servers. Each specific service set generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail 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 independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular now.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative institution. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of money must be invested as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the web hosting CP too.

One server-based hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house made cloud hosting systems with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Pasquarille Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The smallest investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
