How Cloud Website Hosting Operates

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves distinct web hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of leading edge web servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting deceit. Very widespread now.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no laws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense inconvenience.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on one web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single web server where these particular single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must make a custom website hosting Control Panel that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper examples of custom developed cloud website hosting systems with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at Holt Technology Corporation, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fees

The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
