The sheer truth about the cloud hosting service
In general, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent stacks of top-quality servers. Each specific service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web space hosting deceit. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the web space hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchant has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be spent too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel interfaces (working with the cloud web site hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web space hosting CP as well.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to perform on one server only. All web site hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific single-server web page hosting platforms and Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to fabricate an in-house built webspace hosting Control Panel that will perform flawlessly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Suitable examples of custom devised cloud hosting systems with in-house constructed web hosting Control Panels are: b2chosting.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision fees
The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
