How Cloud Website Hosting Works

Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves various web hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual sets of leading edge web servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The massive cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. This is why the hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they in fact can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, for developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The shortage of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source CPs

So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed hosting CPs besides us, at EzyWeb Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment prices

The smallest contribution required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually unclouded!
