How Does Cloud Web Hosting Work?
Actually, the real cloud hosting solution serves separate web hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The substantial cloud web hosting hoax. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting retailers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the website hosting merchants speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting corporation to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a problem, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source web hosting CP tools (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the website hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one single server only. All web hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to develop an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud website hosting platforms with custom manufactured website hosting CPs besides us, at Web iCloud Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
