How Cloud Hosting Operates

In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of leading edge servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will produce the so-called cloud hosting system.

The gigantic cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at present. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they indeed can deliver.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting trader to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, since establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, plenty of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. In the second place, you must invent the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting CPs

Famous website hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting platforms with custom created website hosting Control Panels besides us, at WebToid, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices

The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
