How Does Cloud Website Hosting Work?

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different hosts of top-notch web servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must 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 Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud hosting hoax. Quite widespread now.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. That is the reason why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous inconvenience.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based CPs

Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one single server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific one-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web hosting CPs besides us, at WebPage 4 All, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
