Cloud Hosting Explanation
In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual packs of high-end servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The huge cloud hosting scam. Very common now.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. That is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate examples of custom developed cloud web hosting systems with custom built Control Panels besides us, at SPV Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
