How Does Cloud Hosting Function?

Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves different web hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of avant-garde web servers. Each single service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is why the hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting firms

If a cPanel-based website hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud hosting system at hand, as devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these respective single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source hosting CPs

So, you have to make an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good instances of custom manufactured cloud web hosting systems with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
