How Cloud Website Hosting Works
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting swindle. Quite widespread now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is the reason why the hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud web hosting they indeed can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, loads of money has to be invested too. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one web server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run impeccably and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made web hosting Control Panels besides us, at MTWS, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
