How Cloud Website Hosting Functions

Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent sets of deluxe servers. Each individual service group produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a 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 separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern at present.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the website hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting systems with custom invented web hosting CPs besides us, at EZ Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
