Cloud Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous hosts of very advanced web servers. Each specific service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk 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 independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting deceit. Quite widespread these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house created cloud website hosting systems with in-house invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at FiduHosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
