How Cloud Web Hosting Functions

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate packs of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Very common at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a predicament, lots of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The lack of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you must set up the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one single server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these given one-server hosting platforms and Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must make a custom Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed hosting CPs besides us, at Advantage IT Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision charges

The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
