How Does Cloud Hosting Function?

In general, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of top-notch servers. Each single service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk 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, and so on. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud website hosting swindle. Very widespread nowadays.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. That is why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, since devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.

The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on one single server solely. All hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source CPs

So, you must invent a custom hosting CP that will perform impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud hosting platforms with in-house devised Control Panels besides us, at Flying Sulcer, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges

The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
