How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?

Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting solution serves distinct website hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of high-end servers. Each particular service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting deceit. Very popular nowadays.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the web hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the CP as well.

Single server-based Control Panels

Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one single server solely. All web hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom developed cloud website hosting systems with custom set up web hosting CPs besides us, at CableHost, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
