The absolute truth about the cloud website hosting solution
In general, the authentic cloud web page hosting solution serves individual hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate packs of high-end web servers. Each individual service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud web site hosting hoax. Quite modern now.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is extremely complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the webspace hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative organization. That is why the webspace hosting providers speculate and lie overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud web page hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, many web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a problem, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud web space hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the CP as well.
One server-based webspace hosting CPs
Famous hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on a single web server exclusively. All web page hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific one-server web hosting platforms and web site hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom developed cloud web hosting solutions with in-house made CPs are: Flashpoint Media Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimum contribution required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually cloudless!
