Cloud Hosting Description

Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting system.

The mammoth cloud website hosting trick. Quite popular now.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. That is why the website hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at Web Hosting Free Trial, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
