How Does Cloud Hosting Operate?

Actually, the authentic cloud website hosting solution serves separate website hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on different stacks of top-quality servers. Each individual service set forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud website hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud hosting system.

The big cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread at present.

There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud website hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is why the web hosting wholesalers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting distributors

If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, in that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.

The lack of open source cloud website hosting solutions

There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must construct the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting CPs

Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one server solely. All website hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are set up.

The absence of open source website hosting Control Panels

So, you have to set up an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised hosting CPs besides us, at ERPNODE, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs

The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
