How Does Cloud Web Hosting Work?

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual bunches of high-end servers. Each specific service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage 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 separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the website hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations

If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, lots of cash must be invested as well. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must fabricate an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good examples of custom created cloud hosting solutions with in-house set up web hosting CPs besides us, at TECHNOMERCE, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
