What Does Cloud Hosting Signify?
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves various web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-notch web servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The immense cloud web hosting trick. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one single server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must construct an in-house built CP that will run perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with in-house set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at VerdeHost.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
