The sheer truth about the cloud website hosting solution
In general, the real cloud web space hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of leading edge web servers. Each different service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The mammoth cloud hosting deceit. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting traders" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry there are no ordinances at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. That is the reason why the web space hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting firm has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, for establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of cash must be spent too. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The absence of open source cloud site hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source site hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, in the first place you must develop one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the webspace hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web page hosting CPs
Popular web site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one server solely. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate a custom web hosting CP that will work impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud hosting systems with in-house made web page hosting CPs are: Hosting.com.ru, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud site hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
