How Cloud Web Hosting Operates
Actually, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves distinct website hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of top-notch web servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The enormous cloud website hosting deceit. Quite modern now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive, cloud web hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud web hosting is. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business there are no decrees at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many web servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel instruments (functioning with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the website hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Popular website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on a single web server only. All web hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must invent an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured website hosting Control Panels besides us, at XOOMSERVERS.NET, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
