The complete truth about the cloud web hosting service
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of very advanced web servers. Each individual service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud hosting system.
The huge cloud site hosting scam. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such legislative organization. That is the reason why the site hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting trader has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, as developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, lots of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web page hosting systems. There aren't any open source hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to make the site hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Modern web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one single server only. All site hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these particular single-server web space hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with custom built site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
