What Does Cloud Hosting Mean?

In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of deluxe web servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to 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 CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common these days.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be spent too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one server only. All hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular one-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must construct a custom web hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of custom set up cloud website hosting platforms with in-house set up hosting CPs besides us, at WebInAfrica, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts 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 systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
