Cloud Hosting Explanation
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on different sets of very powerful servers. Each different service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The immense cloud website hosting trick. Very modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is why the web hosting traders speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular one-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at EUROLATINAMERICAhost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
