How Cloud Hosting Operates

In general, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each separate service pack creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The huge cloud web hosting scam. Quite common at present.

There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud web hosting they in reality can offer.

The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers

If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.

The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the website hosting Control Panel as well.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on a single server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these particular one-server hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.

The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels

So, you must establish an in-house built web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house built cloud website hosting platforms with custom developed web hosting Control Panels besides us, at eBD Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud web hosting hardware provision fares

The minimum investment required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
