The truth about the cloud web site hosting solution
Actually, the genuine cloud web page hosting solution serves separate hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc., on different groups of very advanced servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web hosting swindle. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web site hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such administrative institution. This is why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting wholesaler has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web space hosting system at hand, as building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source web site hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, first you have to fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Popular webspace hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on one single server solely. All web page hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given one-server web site hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you must fabricate a custom web site hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of custom created cloud web hosting solutions with custom developed hosting CPs are: Swifty Host, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest investment wanted, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly unclouded!
