The full truth about the cloud web site hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves individual hosting services like disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent bunches of high-end servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The mammoth cloud web space hosting scam. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the webspace hosting industry there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting provider has a cloud web page hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not an issue, loads of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting systems
There are no open source cloud site hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting CP devices (operating with the cloud site hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the web page hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web space hosting Control Panels
Modern web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on a single web server only. All hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these respective one-server web space hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to construct a custom web space hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting systems with in-house devised webspace hosting Control Panels are: WebHost-ing.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
