How Cloud Website Hosting Works
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves individual website hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of very advanced web servers. Each particular service set produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The big cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting corporations" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud web hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Tons of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the web hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single web server only. All website hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to develop an in-house built website hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house built web hosting CPs besides us, at Mir Sharif Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
