Cloud Hosting Uncovered
In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of top-notch web servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is why the hosting traders speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must establish the hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single web server only. All hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom web hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable instances of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at JBC Group, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
