Interesting details about the cloud web hosting solution
Actually, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different bunches of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the hosting 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 practically the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The mammoth cloud web space hosting swindle. Quite common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is because in the website hosting business there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, loads of money must be spent too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web space hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP tools (running with the cloud web hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web space hosting CP too.
One server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web site hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on a single server solely. All web page hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these particular one-server web site hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source Control Panels
So, you have to create an in-house built web hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with custom invented webspace hosting CPs are: Genius Cloud Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
