The truth about the cloud website hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate packs of high-end servers. Each specific service group constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting swindle. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the web hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web space hosting trader has a cloud site hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, plenty of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, because establishing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested too. Heaps of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud site hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the website hosting CP too.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Famous web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to function on a single server only. All web hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built web page hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of in-house created cloud website hosting platforms with in-house developed webspace hosting CPs are: DevOne Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimum investment needed, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
