How Cloud Website Hosting Works

Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of top-notch web servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The huge cloud hosting swindle. Very common these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers

If a cPanel-based hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the CP as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on a single server only. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must build a custom website hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with custom made website hosting CPs besides us, at WardHost.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment rates

The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
