How Does Cloud Web Hosting Work?

Essentially, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different stacks of deluxe servers. Each separate service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The colossal cloud web hosting hoax. Quite popular these days.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting vendors" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting business there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is why the website hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they in reality can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, multiple web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.

The absence of open source cloud hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the website hosting CP too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to build an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will run unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of custom made cloud hosting systems with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Innovative Hosting Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
