How Cloud Web Hosting Functions

Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of deluxe web servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Very widespread these days.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, multiple servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the web hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on one server only. All hosting services (disk storage, 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 web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source CPs

So, you must make an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Proper examples of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Big Data HOST IT, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
