What is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of top-quality servers. Each separate service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space 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 beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at present.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no statutes at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervising organization. This is why the hosting firms speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be invested too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting systems with custom created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at HSERVERS.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
