The whole truth about the cloud web page hosting service
In general, the authentic cloud site hosting platform serves different hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web space hosting system.
The colossal cloud web site hosting scam. Very modern today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud hosting traders" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry niche there are no norms whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. This is why the web site hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting firms
If a cPanel-based site hosting merchandiser has a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, a lot of hosting servers must be acquired. 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 troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, in that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent too. Heaps of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (operating with the cloud web hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the webspace hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based webspace hosting CPs
Popular web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to operate on one single server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web site hosting Control Panels
So, you must create a custom website hosting CP that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house made cloud hosting platforms with in-house set up website hosting CPs are: HD Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web page hosting platforms can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
