The facts about the cloud webspace hosting solution
Actually, the real cloud website hosting solution serves different hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate groups of top-quality servers. Each separate service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will produce the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The big cloud web space hosting deceit. Quite common at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the site hosting business niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is why the website hosting vendors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting vendor has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very unbelievable, many servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, because establishing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, loads of cash must be spent as well. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.
The shortage of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting systems. There aren't any open source Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web page hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Second of all, you have to establish the web site hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to function on one single server solely. All website hosting services (storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server web site hosting platforms and hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source webspace hosting CPs
So, you must construct an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good instances of in-house invented cloud hosting platforms with in-house invented web space hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
