How Cloud Web Hosting Operates

Essentially, the real cloud hosting solution serves various website hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of top-notch web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The immense cloud website hosting hoax. Very popular nowadays.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting CP tools (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting system at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single server where these given single-server website hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source CPs

So, you must devise a custom website hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud hosting platforms with custom manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at cHostit, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The minimum contribution wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
