How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?

Actually, the actual cloud web hosting solution serves separate website hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of leading edge web servers. Each single service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting system.

The enormous cloud website hosting deceit. Quite popular at present.

There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative body. That is why the website hosting firms speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, a lot of cash must be invested too. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP devices (running with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the website hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based CPs

Today's popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on a single web server solely. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Suitable examples of in-house built cloud hosting solutions with custom developed web hosting CPs besides us, at Black Cotton Works - Website Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
