How Cloud Web Hosting Works

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting solution serves distinct web hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of deluxe servers. Each individual service pack creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Quite widespread at the moment.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. That is the reason why the web hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting traders

If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, lots of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the Control Panel too.

Single server-based CPs

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you must develop an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting CPs besides us, at HostCheetah.net, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment expenses

The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
