The whole truth about the cloud site hosting solution
In general, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate sets of leading edge web servers. Each different 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 operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.
The massive cloud webspace hosting fraud. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the site hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is the reason why the web site hosting vendors speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting providers
If a cPanel-based hosting merchandiser has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that fabricating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a problem, lots of money has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel instruments (running with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one single server solely. All hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single server where these respective single-server web site hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up an in-house built site hosting CP that will function flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good examples of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised web site hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision prices
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
