Description of Cloud Hosting

Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of top-quality web servers. Each individual service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The massive cloud web hosting deceit. Quite common now.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. This is why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, in that establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Modern hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed Control Panels besides us, at Luuka Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
