Cloud Hosting Description
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves different hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web 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 different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. That is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to establish the hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Today's popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Kal Mass Media Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
