The complete truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the authentic cloud site hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different hosts of very advanced servers. Each particular service pack generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The great cloud web site hosting swindle. Quite common at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the website hosting corporations speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web page hosting retailer has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, for developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be spent too. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel tools (functioning with the cloud web site hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web space hosting Control Panels
Popular web space hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single web server only. All site hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular one-server web hosting systems and web site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will work unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good instances of custom set up cloud hosting systems with custom invented CPs are: SABWeb Host, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
