How Cloud Hosting Operates

Essentially, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of leading edge servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The great cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread today.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting today. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, a lot of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The lack of open source cloud web hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based website hosting CPs

Famous web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on a single server solely. All hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good instances of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at Pace Work Technologies, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
