The precise truth about the cloud website hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will produce the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The great cloud webspace hosting trick. Very widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is why the webspace hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based hosting supplier has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous servers must be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, lots of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source website hosting CP interfaces (functioning with the cloud website hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Famous CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one web server only. All webspace hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these given single-server web hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom web site hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting solutions with custom invented hosting CPs are: Bulan Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment fees
The smallest investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
