What is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves different web hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-notch web servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats 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 mammoth cloud hosting swindle. Very widespread today.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the web hosting merchants speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting retailer to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting CP user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the website hosting CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must build a custom hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom made cloud website hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting CPs besides us, at Zackdesignz Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
