How Cloud Website Hosting Operates

In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of leading edge web servers. Each different service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting deceit. Very modern today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting now. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no decrees whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting retailer has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, many web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not a problem, loads of cash must be invested too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (operating with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the web hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single web server solely. All hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of custom made cloud web hosting systems with in-house built web hosting Control Panels besides us, at HostPapaya, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
