Cloud Hosting Defined
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of top-notch web servers. Each specific service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email 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 independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common at present.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, loads of money must be invested too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on a single server only. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to develop an in-house built hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented hosting CPs besides us, at Free Giga Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
