How Does Cloud Hosting Function?

In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves separate web hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different stacks of top-quality servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The substantial cloud web hosting fraud. Very popular at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud hosting at the moment. As you can see, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling organization. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, due to the fact that constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the website hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one server solely. All website hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting solutions with custom constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at Keyword Rich Domains, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision charges

The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
