How Cloud Website Hosting Works

Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-notch web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting system.

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

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory organization. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting company has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, for inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent as well. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The deficiency of open source Control Panels

So, you must develop a custom web hosting CP that will operate uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good examples of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with in-house invented website hosting Control Panels besides us, at TheDedicatedHosting.com, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision costs

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
