The truth about the cloud website hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, etc., on different groups of leading edge web servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.
The massive cloud web page hosting hoax. Very common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting firms" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling body. This is why the site hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web space hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud webspace hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud site hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud web page hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you must devise the web space hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Modern Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to function on one single web server only. All web space hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular single-server website hosting platforms and CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised web site hosting Control Panels are: Duo Servers, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
