How Cloud Website Hosting Functions

Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of leading edge servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common at present.

There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative body. This is why the web hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, as fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.

The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud web hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the CP as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must devise an in-house built website hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good instances of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at Christian Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fares

The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
