What Actually is Cloud Hosting?

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous packs of very powerful servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud web hosting hoax. Very modern nowadays.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative body. This is why the web hosting suppliers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Mountains of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on a single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must make a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with in-house constructed hosting Control Panels besides us, at 7 Sea Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimum investment wanted, just 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 fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
