Interesting details about the cloud web site hosting solution
Actually, the authentic cloud site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of high-end web servers. Each particular service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting system.
The big cloud site hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. That is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in reality can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud site hosting platform at hand, in that setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not an issue, plenty of money must be invested too. Heaps of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There are no open source cloud webspace hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. In the second place, you have to create the CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to operate on a single web server only. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server site hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web hosting CPs
So, you must build a custom web page hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house invented cloud hosting solutions with custom made web space hosting CPs are: Wantok Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution required, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
