What Does Cloud Hosting Denote?
In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of high-end servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a 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, and so on. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The enormous cloud hosting fraud. Very common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. 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 web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based Control Panels
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to operate on a single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, 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 particular single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom web hosting CP that will work impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Appropriate instances of custom built cloud hosting solutions with in-house constructed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Mobile Top Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
