What In Fact is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate packs of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email 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 generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The enormous cloud web hosting deceit. Very common these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the web hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to develop a custom hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Good instances of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house made website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Raintree Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
