Cloud Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of cutting-edge servers. Each different service set makes a cluster. All the web 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 nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud website hosting deceit. Quite common these days.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers

If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must create an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with custom invented website hosting CPs besides us, at HostComprania, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
