The facts about the cloud web hosting service
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous packs of top-notch web servers. Each separate service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud site hosting platform.
The immense cloud site hosting fraud. Very widespread these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting business niche there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the site hosting traders speculate and lie overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, multiple web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud site hosting platform at hand, for building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web page hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web site hosting solutions. There are no open source CP interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web page hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one server only. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these given single-server site hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you must fabricate an in-house built web site hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper instances of custom invented cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built hosting CPs are: hosting-people, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
