The truth about the cloud web page hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud web site hosting solution serves various hosting services such as data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different bunches of deluxe web servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The great cloud web hosting scam. Very widespread these days.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting companies" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web site hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such legislative body. That is why the web space hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting trader has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, lots of web servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a predicament, plenty of cash must be spent as well. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud webspace hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud hosting platform at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to create the web site hosting CP too.
One server-based webspace hosting CPs
Contemporary website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one server only. All webspace hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and site hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to set up an in-house built web space hosting CP that will perform unproblematically and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Good instances of in-house made cloud hosting systems with custom constructed web hosting CPs are: adconcept, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
