The facts about the cloud hosting service
Actually, the real cloud web space hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of deluxe servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will compose the so-called cloud hosting system.
The huge cloud website hosting scam. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting corporations" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the hosting companies speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web site hosting merchandiser has a cloud web space hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting environments
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud site hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to establish one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the web page hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given single-server web space hosting systems and web page hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must build an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will function perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of in-house devised cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud site hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
