How Cloud Hosting Operates

Essentially, the real cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services such as data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on different hosts of leading edge web servers. Each single service pack makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol 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 generate the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The enormous cloud web hosting swindle. Very common these days.

There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. That is why the website hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

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

If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, loads of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting provider to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to build the web hosting CP too.

One server-based website hosting Control Panels

Famous Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to construct an in-house built website hosting CP that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with custom developed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at Blaze IT Consulting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fares

The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
