How Cloud Website Hosting Works
In general, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves individual website hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of very powerful servers. Each separate service group produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The gigantic cloud web hosting fraud. Quite popular today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is why the hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud web hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel web hosting provider to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, as setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, lots of money must be spent too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense predicament.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must develop the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Famous website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one single web server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you have to fabricate a custom website hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Proper examples of custom made cloud web hosting systems with custom created website hosting CPs besides us, at Kaba Host, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
