The sheer truth about the cloud webspace hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud website hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of very advanced web servers. Each single service group creates a cluster. All the web hosting 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 out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The gigantic cloud site hosting swindle. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting business niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such regulative institution. This is why the web space hosting companies speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud site hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, numerous hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, since establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, loads of money has to be spent too. Stacks of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The absence of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud site hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the web hosting CP too.
One server-based web page hosting CPs
Popular webspace hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server only. All web space hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these specific one-server web hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source webspace hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom web hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Proper examples of custom built cloud web hosting systems with custom constructed hosting Control Panels are: Hosterati, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
