How Cloud Website Hosting Works
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different stacks of leading edge servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The mammoth cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting business there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Famous hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must build a custom web hosting CP that will function impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house created web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Hepsia, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
