The complete truth about the cloud website hosting service
Essentially, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of avant-garde servers. Each particular service set forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud web site hosting hoax. Very popular these days.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is the reason why the web space hosting firms speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web space hosting merchandiser has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud web site hosting system at hand, because of the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not a problem, lots of cash must be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud web space hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the webspace hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based site hosting CPs
Today's popular web site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to work on one single web server solely. All web page hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective one-server webspace hosting systems and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to set up a custom hosting CP that will work perfectly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting systems with in-house devised CPs are: adroit Web Host, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision costs
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
