Curious details about the cloud site hosting solution
Essentially, the actual cloud web site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very powerful web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic 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 build the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The big cloud webspace hosting fraud. 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 complicated, but in fact it is highly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting business there are no statutes at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative organization. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web space hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, lots of cash must be spent too. Mountains of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud webspace hosting platforms. There are no open source hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the web space hosting CP too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server exclusively. All site hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these particular one-server site hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source web page hosting CPs
So, you must make an in-house built web site hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper instances of in-house invented cloud hosting solutions with custom built web space hosting Control Panels are: Central Target, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
