The truth about the cloud web hosting service
Essentially, the real cloud web space hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different packs of leading edge servers. Each specific service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud hosting system.
The enormous cloud web space hosting deceit. Very modern at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud site hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no ordinances at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative body. This is the reason why the hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, many servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, as inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, loads of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web site hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on a single server only. All website hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source site hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate a custom site hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed web page hosting CPs are: Flowers Technologies, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
