Description of Cloud Hosting
Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent stacks of avant-garde servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Quite common these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud hosting platform at hand, for constructing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must make an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of custom set up cloud web hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Agra Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
