How Does Cloud Hosting Function?

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves various website hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of deluxe servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.

The enormous cloud website hosting scam. Very modern these days.

There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based web hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.

The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the website hosting CP as well.

Single server-based hosting CPs

Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one web server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The lack of open source web hosting CPs

So, you must establish an in-house built website hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good examples of in-house devised cloud website hosting solutions with custom constructed website hosting Control Panels besides us, at MBS Digital Solutions, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses

The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud 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 USD. Now you do know how many cloud hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
