How Does Cloud Web Hosting Function?

In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent hosts of high-end servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.

The big cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular now.

There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is highly complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulative body. That is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting merchant to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, loads of money must be invested as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based web hosting CPs

Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given single-server web hosting platforms and CPs are set up.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you must build a custom website hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed website hosting CPs besides us, at ZYNOTEK, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs

The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
