The precise truth about the cloud web site hosting solution
In general, the authentic cloud web page hosting platform serves different hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of very powerful servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting system.
The colossal cloud web page hosting deceit. Quite modern these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting retailers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. That is why the website hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web page hosting corporation has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, because establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web space hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to develop one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the hosting CP too.
One server-based hosting CPs
Modern web space hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to run on a single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these respective one-server site hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web space hosting CPs
So, you have to build an in-house built web page hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good instances of custom developed cloud hosting platforms with in-house constructed webspace hosting Control Panels are: Heartland Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
