How Cloud Hosting Operates
In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous groups of high-end servers. Each different service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The massive cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread nowadays.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting providers
If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on a single server only. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom web hosting CP that will function perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at EASYTECH AFRICA, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
