Curious facts about the cloud site hosting service
Actually, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different sets of leading edge web servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The enormous cloud website hosting trick. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web site hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the website hosting retailers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting retailers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting distributor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, many servers must be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, because inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud web page hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source web page hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must invent the site hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based webspace hosting Control Panels
Today's popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one server only. All site hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web page hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to make a custom site hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper examples of custom devised cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
