The sheer truth about the cloud web site hosting service
Actually, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different hosts of very powerful web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The great cloud site hosting swindle. Very modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting providers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is because in the web site hosting business niche there are no norms at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting firm has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, numerous hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, since establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be spent as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web page hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web site hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the web page hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based Control Panels
Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single web server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective single-server web space hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make an in-house built web space hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Good instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house constructed web site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
