The precise truth about the cloud web hosting service
Actually, the real cloud web space hosting solution serves individual hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different sets of top-notch servers. Each specific service group forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The massive cloud website hosting trick. Quite common now.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud site hosting vendors" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. This is why the site hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting wholesaler has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of hosting servers must be obtained. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, since devising one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.
The lack of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There are no open source cloud webspace hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web site hosting CP too.
One server-based webspace hosting CPs
Famous web hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on a single web server exclusively. All web space hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular single-server web site hosting systems and web page hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent an in-house built web page hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of in-house set up cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised web space hosting CPs are: Allenion Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud site hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly unclouded!
