What is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual groups of high-end web servers. Each particular service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same 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 CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to create a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house built cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at nextlevelwebhost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
