The truth about the cloud web space hosting solution
Essentially, the real cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of very powerful web servers. Each single service pack generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Very widespread today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web page hosting business there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such self-controlling institution. This is why the website hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a predicament, lots of cash must be spent as well. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There aren't any open source web page hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud site hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the web site hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based site hosting Control Panels
Modern site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one server only. All web space hosting services (disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective single-server webspace hosting platforms and web space hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source CPs
So, you have to invent a custom Control Panel that will work uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Proper examples of in-house manufactured cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made site hosting Control Panels are: EuropeHosting.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision fees
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
