How Cloud Web Hosting Functions
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of high-end servers. Each particular service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk 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 separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting hoax. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. That is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Contemporary web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built web hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom created hosting Control Panels besides us, at St. Clare Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
