The whole truth about the cloud web site hosting service
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on individual sets of top-notch web servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The substantial cloud hosting swindle. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting business there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the web space hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, for inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Heaps of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web space hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to create the CP too.
Single server-based hosting Control Panels
Popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to perform on one single server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular single-server web page hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up a custom webspace hosting CP that will function faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom built website hosting Control Panels are: iClick and Host - Reliable webhosting at lowest prices, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum investment wanted, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web page hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
