The sheer truth about the cloud web space hosting service
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual sets of top-notch servers. Each specific service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The huge cloud web page hosting fraud. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such administrative body. This is why the hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web site hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, multiple web servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, because establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested as well. Heaps of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a great problem.
The lack of open source cloud website hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There are no open source web space hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web site hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, first you have to invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must invent the site hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Popular web page hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular single-server hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom web space hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud website hosting platforms with in-house devised hosting CPs are: Website Business Center, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment charges
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
