Curious details about the cloud website hosting solution
Essentially, the actual cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services such as storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of cutting-edge web servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic 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 page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will create the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The massive cloud webspace hosting hoax. Quite popular at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no stipulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting corporation has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, as constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent too. Tons of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud site hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, in the first place you must fabricate one. In-house. In the second place, you have to construct the hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web space hosting Control Panels
Contemporary site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on one single web server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these given one-server web page hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you must set up an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house developed cloud hosting solutions with custom manufactured site hosting Control Panels are: TUWEBHOST, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision rates
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
