Cloud Hosting Definition

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves different web hosting services such as storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of deluxe servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there would be: a disk 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, etc. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting swindle. Quite modern at present.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the web hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting platforms with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at NWISG, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
