How Cloud Web Hosting Functions

Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of very powerful servers. Each specific service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common today.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such legislative body. This is why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders

If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, loads of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to work on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source Control Panels

So, you have to establish an in-house built website hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good instances of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed Control Panels besides us, at WebhostID, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
