How Does Cloud Hosting Work?

Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves various hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different packs of deluxe web servers. Each single service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting hoax. Quite common today.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, lots of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.

The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the web hosting Control Panel too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these given one-server web hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must develop an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting systems with custom built website hosting CPs besides us, at North Vancouver Web Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimum contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
