The facts about the cloud website hosting solution
Essentially, the real cloud web page hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of very powerful web servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.
The substantial cloud webspace hosting hoax. Very common these days.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is greatly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting vendors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is why the site hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based hosting merchant has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent as well. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a big obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web page hosting environments. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel devices (operating with the cloud website hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, in the first place you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you must develop the website hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web page hosting CPs
Today's popular web page hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to run on one server solely. All web space hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these given single-server web site hosting systems and site hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom website hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of custom invented cloud hosting systems with custom constructed site hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
