What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual stacks of deluxe servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting swindle. Quite popular today.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such administrative body. This is why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, lots of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good instances of in-house built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Bookeers Australia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
