Cloud Hosting Explanation

Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-notch servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud hosting swindle. 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 fact it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is why the hosting providers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this article. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper instances of in-house built cloud website hosting systems with in-house set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at MyGreatHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
