What Does Cloud Hosting Signify?

In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of top-quality servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The lack of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the CP too.

Single server-based hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must build a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with custom made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at I'mHosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimum investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
