How Cloud Website Hosting Functions

Actually, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves separate web hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different stacks of top-quality web servers. Each individual service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail 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 different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud website hosting platform.

The substantial cloud hosting hoax. Quite common at the moment.

There is so much misunderstanding 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 perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud web hosting they in fact can deliver.

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

If a cPanel-based hosting merchant has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel web hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.

The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions

There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the website hosting CP too.

Single server-based website hosting Control Panels

Contemporary hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these given one-server hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are installed.

The absence of open source website hosting CPs

So, you have to devise a custom website hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed web hosting CPs besides us, at RatRod Hosting, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees

The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
