How Cloud Hosting Functions
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of top-notch servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting deceit. Quite widespread these days.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these given single-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting systems with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Registrar 4 us, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
