Curious facts about the cloud web site hosting service
Actually, the real cloud site hosting platform serves different hosting services like web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of deluxe servers. Each particular service pack generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting fraud. Quite common at the moment.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is highly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting retailers" speculate intensely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting industry niche there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is why the webspace hosting vendors speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting merchant has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, loads of hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to keep the cloud site hosting platform at hand, as creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent too. Tons of cash. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud webspace hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. In the second place, you must create the hosting CP as well.
One server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Popular web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on a single server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these respective one-server webspace hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you must invent a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Suitable examples of in-house made cloud hosting solutions with in-house created web hosting CPs are: gruppopaosoft, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution required, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
