The truth about the cloud web hosting service
Essentially, the authentic cloud site hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent packs of avant-garde servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real 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 webspace hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The substantial cloud web space hosting fraud. Very popular today.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is highly perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the website hosting providers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting companies
If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, as constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web site hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web page hosting CPs
Contemporary hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one server solely. All web page hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective one-server web space hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to create a custom hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house invented hosting Control Panels are: ClearHosting.no, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
