Cloud Hosting Explanation

Actually, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of top-notch servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The gigantic cloud web hosting trick. Very common now.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they indeed can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source CP tools (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single web server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you have to establish a custom website hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate instances of custom created cloud website hosting platforms with in-house set up web hosting Control Panels besides us, at MyGreatHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
