How Cloud Website Hosting Functions
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of leading edge servers. Each separate service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The enormous cloud web hosting hoax. Very common these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative organization. This is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting distributor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, in that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of cash has to be invested too. Stacks of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom website hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom made Control Panels besides us, at Universal-Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
