The facts about the cloud web site hosting solution
Essentially, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves separate hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate bunches of deluxe web servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. 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 would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will build the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.
The big cloud web hosting swindle. Quite widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud website hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous shame. This is because in the hosting industry niche there are no regulations at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the web page hosting merchants speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web space hosting supplier has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, since developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be invested as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web page hosting CP tools (functioning with the cloud web space hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you must make the web hosting CP as well.
One server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Today's popular hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these given single-server hosting systems and site hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish a custom web site hosting CP that will function impeccably and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible component of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom devised CPs are: Hosting Pine, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment wanted, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
