Cloud Hosting Unmasked
In general, the real cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual hosts of high-end servers. Each separate service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a 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 independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The massive cloud hosting deceit. Very popular at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, many web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be spent too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source hosting CP GUIs (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on a single web server only. All website hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular one-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable instances of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at iRed Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
