The full truth about the cloud site hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will compose the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The great cloud web hosting swindle. Very popular nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting distributors" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. That is why the hosting merchants speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting traders
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, many web servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, as establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great downside.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web page hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these specific single-server web space hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good instances of custom constructed cloud hosting systems with in-house created CPs are: Papua Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
