How Does Cloud Web Hosting Work?

In general, the real cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate packs of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The big cloud hosting swindle. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchandisers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting environments

There aren't any open source cloud hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP tools (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will work flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of custom constructed cloud web hosting systems with in-house constructed hosting Control Panels besides us, at Byoservers, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
