The pure thruth about the cloud site hosting service
Actually, the real cloud web page hosting platform serves different hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate sets of cutting-edge web servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.
The great cloud web space hosting deceit. Very modern today.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the web page hosting business niche there are no statutes at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. That is why the website hosting companies speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web page hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, as devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Tons of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web space hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you have to develop one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the web hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Contemporary web hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to run on a single web server exclusively. All hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these specific one-server web page hosting systems and site hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you must devise an in-house built web hosting CP that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate instances of custom set up cloud hosting systems with in-house manufactured CPs are: GTO Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
