What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of leading edge web servers. Each specific service set generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting hoax. Quite widespread these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be invested too. Heaps of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The absence of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single web server only. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Pasquarille Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
