What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of leading edge servers. Each particular service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising body. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one server only. All website hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper instances of in-house built cloud website hosting platforms with in-house made Control Panels besides us, at Green Data Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
