We continue our cycle of materials about starting a hosting business. The first article had a step-by-step guide on starting domains and SSL-certificates reselling , the second one was devoted to starting shared hosting. Important notice: we highly recommend you to start from thinking about a business model and a legal side. Define your target audience and ways of its attraction, choose a price policy that will work for your clients and will be beneficial for you. It will be helpful to study the legal and bookkeeping aspects of running the hosting business before you proceed with a technical realization of your plan. A virtual private server VPS works in the same way as a real physical server. A number of independent virtual machines can be run on one physical server.
What do you need to start
Connecting to VMs
With some luck, I had a fortuitous meeting with the conference organizer prior to the event. I was able to discern the hot issue for the attendee base: security. The reason was clear as a prominent website suffered a highly publicized series of cyber attacks just prior to the convention. Why fortuitous you ask? By this, I mean preventing the weakest link, a single customer from taking down the entire infrastructure and affecting other customers residing on the shared network. The most important reason for using cloud services is cost savings. Cloud services achieve this cost saving by sharing infrastructure resources. For example, running multiple virtual machines on a single physical server, or sharing storage, or sharing ADCs. During the attack, the neighboring website receives a massive amount of traffic, which overloads its infrastructure resources and takes it down; this includes the application, the server and the ADC in front of it. Now, even if the cloud provider has isolated the different hosted services on the network level, and configured different routing domains per service in the ADC, the ADC processing capacity is still shared, and an attack through one of the ADC services will consume all of its processing resources and bring down all sites using the same shared ADC.
This document describes how to connect to Linux virtual machine VM instances using the Google Cloud Console and the gcloud command-line tool.
