How Cloud Website Hosting Operates
In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves different website hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of very powerful servers. Each particular service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The enormous cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms
If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the website hosting CP too.
One server-based Control Panels
Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Suitable examples of custom set up cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed hosting Control Panels besides us, at True Cloud Hosting Uganda, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
