Cloud hosting is a method of using online virtual servers that can be created, modified, and destroyed on demand. Cloud servers are allocated resources like CPU cores and memory by the physical server that it's hosted on and can be configured with a developer's choice of operating system and accompanying software. Cloud hosting can be used for hosting websites, sending and storing emails, and distributing web-based applications and other services.

TLS, or "transport layer security", and its predecessor SSL, which stands for "secure sockets layer", are web protocols used to wrap normal traffic in a protected, encrypted wrapper. Using this technology, servers can send traffic safely between the server and the client without the concern that the messages will be intercepted and read by an outside party. The certificate system also assists users in verifying the identity of the sites that they are connecting with.

In this article, we will show you how to set up a self-signed SSL certificate for use with an Apache web server on a CentOS 7. A self-signed certificate will not validate the identity of your server, since it is not signed by a trusted certificate authorities, but it will allow you to encrypt communications between your server and your visitors.

The Apache web server is the most popular way of serving web content on the Internet. It serves more than half of all of the Internet's active websites, and is extremely powerful and flexible.

Apache breaks down its functionality and components into individual units that can be customized and configured independently. The basic unit that describes an individual site or domain is called a virtual host. Virtual hosts allow one server to host multiple domains or interfaces by using a matching system. This is relevant to anyone looking to host more than one site off of a single Server.

Each domain that is configured will direct the visitor to a specific directory holding that site's information, without ever indicating that the same server is also responsible for other sites. This scheme is expandable without any software limit, as long as your server can handle the traffic that all of the sites attract.

In this guide, we will walk through how to set up Apache virtual hosts on a CentOS 7 Server. During this process, you'll learn how to serve different content to different visitors depending on which domains they are requesting.
