The truth about the cloud webspace hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud web space hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of top-notch servers. Each specific service set generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.
The great cloud web site hosting swindle. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting industry there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is the reason why the website hosting firms speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based site hosting firm has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, plenty of money must be spent too. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting environments
There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source website hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud webspace hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must create the web site hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on one server only. All site hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these respective single-server site hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web page hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom web space hosting CP that will perform flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed hosting CPs are: World Wide Web Market, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
