Curious facts about the cloud website hosting solution
In general, the real cloud web site hosting solution serves separate hosting services like data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different packs of top-notch web servers. Each specific service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.
The big cloud hosting swindle. Quite modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is greatly complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this popular ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast disgrace. This is because in the web hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such supervisory institution. This is the reason why the web site hosting vendors speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based site hosting company has a cloud site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, many web hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, for building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, lots of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (functioning with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud site hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to develop the Control Panel too.
One server-based hosting Control Panels
Modern webspace hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to function on a single server solely. All web site hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and web space hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you must make a custom site hosting CP that will run impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of in-house created cloud web hosting solutions with custom made website hosting Control Panels are: assaf Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision costs
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
