Definition of Cloud Hosting
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate hosts of top-notch web servers. Each particular service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The enormous cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the CP as well.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to perform on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at GaySpaceNetwork.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
