How Cloud Hosting Operates
In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of very powerful web servers. Each different service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP 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 individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud hosting swindle. Very widespread these days.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is the reason why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a problem, loads of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good instances of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with custom built website hosting CPs besides us, at Net JA, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
