The precise truth about the cloud site hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud web space hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual packs of very advanced web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud webspace hosting hoax. Quite popular now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! An enormous disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. This is why the site hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web page hosting vendor has a cloud site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because of the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The absence of open source cloud web space hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud site hosting systems. There aren't any open source web site hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) as well. So, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the site hosting CP too.
One server-based CPs
Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on a single web server only. All web space hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single web server where these respective one-server web page hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you have to build an in-house built website hosting CP that will function uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud hosting systems with custom devised website hosting Control Panels are: CREAWEBHOSTING, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
