The truth about the cloud site hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud site hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate hosts of very advanced servers. Each different service set forms a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting system.
The great cloud site hosting deceit. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such self-controlling organization. This is why the web space hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting firms
If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unbelievable, a lot of servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, in that building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not an issue, loads of cash must be invested as well. Mountains of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web site hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to construct one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the webspace hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one server exclusively. All web site hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective one-server site hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate examples of custom manufactured cloud hosting platforms with in-house constructed webspace hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
