What Actually is Cloud Hosting?
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of top-notch servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic 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 different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The mammoth cloud web hosting trick. Very modern at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, loads of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The absence of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single server only. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting CPs besides us, at Pepcube Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
