How Cloud Website Hosting Works

Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves various website hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate sets of very powerful web servers. Each particular service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The great 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 web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to invent a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Minihosting Technologies, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices

The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
