The complete truth about the cloud web page hosting service
Essentially, the authentic cloud web page hosting platform serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of high-end servers. Each separate service set forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud web page hosting fraud. Very common at present.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is intensely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is why the web site hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based site hosting provider has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested as well. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud web space hosting systems
There are no open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There are no open source Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud webspace hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web page hosting CP as well.
Single server-based webspace hosting Control Panels
Popular web page hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to function on one single web server solely. All web site hosting services (storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these particular single-server web page hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom CP that will function unproblematically and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Suitable instances of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed CPs are: Hosting Services, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal contribution demanded, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
