How Cloud Website Hosting Works

Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves individual web hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of high-end servers. Each separate service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud web hosting fraud. Quite modern now.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built website hosting CP that will work impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of custom set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised website hosting CPs besides us, at 95Dollar.Website, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision fees

The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
