The truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the real cloud website hosting solution serves various hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of avant-garde servers. Each single service group makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would 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 autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The huge cloud webspace hosting fraud. Quite common these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting firms" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the web page hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting provider has a cloud site hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, loads of cash has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting systems
There are no open source cloud site hosting environments. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Secondly, you must set up the web hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web space hosting CPs
Famous web space hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single server only. All webspace hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these given one-server web hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web page hosting CPs
So, you must construct a custom web space hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house invented cloud hosting solutions with in-house made site hosting Control Panels are: HD Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment fees
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
