Curious facts about the cloud web site hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud web space hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of very advanced servers. Each particular service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The great cloud site hosting scam. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud site hosting suppliers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the hosting industry there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is the reason why the site hosting providers speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting supplier has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, a lot of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web space hosting system at hand, since inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous problem.
The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting environments
There are no open source cloud site hosting environments. There are no open source web page hosting CP devices (running with the cloud hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, first you must establish one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the web space hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Famous site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one server only. All web space hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given one-server website hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source CPs
So, you have to create a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of custom built cloud website hosting systems with custom devised hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting systems can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
