Curious facts about the cloud web space hosting service
Essentially, the genuine cloud web space hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of avant-garde servers. Each particular service set forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will generate the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud web hosting scam. Quite widespread today.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting companies" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such regulative organization. This is why the web hosting vendors speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud site hosting platform at hand, in that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested as well. Piles of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting systems. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud web site hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the web page hosting CP too.
One server-based website hosting Control Panels
Modern web page hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to work on one server only. All web space hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single web server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source webspace hosting CPs
So, you must develop an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will function uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision rates
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
