The sheer truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different stacks of top-notch web servers. Each particular service set makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting trick. Very widespread now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry there are no norms at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. That is why the web hosting retailers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly 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" web space hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web space hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of web hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this review. First off, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, since fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting CP GUIs (working with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web space hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based web hosting Control Panels
Modern Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these particular one-server web page hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct a custom site hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house invented cloud web hosting platforms with custom created web space hosting Control Panels are: Hostomedia, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
