How Does Cloud Website Hosting Work?

Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves separate website hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of cutting-edge servers. Each specific service group produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud website hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The great cloud web hosting swindle. Quite common at present.

There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers

If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel web hosting company to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, for building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting environments

There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Modern web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on a single web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.

The deficiency of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you have to fabricate an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function flawlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom made cloud web hosting platforms with custom created web hosting CPs besides us, at Seemon Tech, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment wanted, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
