Cloud Hosting Explanation
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent groups of high-end servers. Each individual service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP 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 compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The substantial cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. This is why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on a single web server only. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with custom built web hosting CPs besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
