Explanation of Cloud Hosting
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves different hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of deluxe servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine 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 web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud hosting system.
The big cloud website hosting deceit. Quite popular now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, loads of money has to be invested too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these given one-server hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting platforms with in-house developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at VaporRave.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
