What Precisely is Cloud Hosting?

In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves different website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of high-end servers. Each different service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread today.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be spent too. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these given one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish a custom website hosting Control Panel that will function uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of custom devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at DASOFT TECHNOLOGIES, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
