How Does Cloud Web Hosting Function?
In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves different web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of cutting-edge web servers. Each different service group makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, because constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source CP devices (operating with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one single server only. All website hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these respective single-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must create a custom website hosting CP that will perform uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good examples of custom made cloud hosting systems with in-house manufactured web hosting CPs besides us, at Social Stream ME, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
