What is Cloud Hosting?

Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent packs of cutting-edge servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting trick. Quite modern today.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. That is why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, many hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the web hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on a single web server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to make a custom web hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with in-house set up website hosting Control Panels besides us, at x1plorar Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
