How Does Cloud Website Hosting Function?

What is Cloud Website Hosting
Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves various website hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent packs of very advanced web servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The mammoth cloud hosting scam. Very popular today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" 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 industry there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud hosting system at hand, because of the fact that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one web server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must set up an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom created Control Panels besides us, at DWS Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
