What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of leading edge web servers. Each separate service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting scam. Quite common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent too. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these respective one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house set up CPs besides us, at JBC Group, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
