Curious facts about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different hosts of top-quality web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting scam. Quite common at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting industry there are no enactments at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such supervisory institution. This is why the hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they indeed can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web site hosting wholesaler has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud web page hosting system at hand, as inventing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, lots of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast predicament.
The lack of open source cloud web page hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There aren't any open source Control Panel interfaces (functioning with the cloud site hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to develop the hosting CP as well.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Today's popular web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to run on a single web server exclusively. All web page hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these specific single-server web hosting platforms and web page hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you have to invent a custom webspace hosting Control Panel that will operate flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Good examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom developed web page hosting Control Panels are: Zona Informatica, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically cloudless!
