How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent sets of leading edge servers. Each single service pack produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The enormous cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one single server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must make a custom web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable examples of custom developed cloud website hosting systems with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at 5D Hosting Domain .UK .US, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
