How Does Cloud Web Hosting Work?

Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of cutting-edge servers. Each different service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Very widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting these days. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervising institution. That is why the hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on a single web server only. All hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting systems with custom manufactured hosting CPs besides us, at Isolex Web Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
