How Does Cloud Website Hosting Operate?

Actually, the real cloud web hosting platform serves different website hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of top-quality web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The big cloud website hosting fraud. Very widespread now.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud web hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. That is the reason why the hosting firms speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting wholesaler to have the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, lots of money must be invested as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting systems

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel tools (operating with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the website hosting Control Panel as well.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Contemporary Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.

The shortage of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to set up an in-house built hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Suitable examples of custom built cloud website hosting platforms with in-house created website hosting CPs besides us, at Obour Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware equipment charges

The minimum contribution demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting solutions can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
