The whole truth about the cloud web hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of deluxe servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud webspace hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting scam. Very widespread now.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting wholesalers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web page hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. This is why the web space hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting merchant has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web space hosting Control Panels
Modern web space hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to run on one single web server solely. All webspace hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific one-server web site hosting systems and Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up an in-house built web page hosting Control Panel that will function unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of custom built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house invented CPs are: eTexHosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
