The facts about the cloud hosting solution
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of leading edge web servers. Each particular service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing aside from it. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a webspace hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will render the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud website hosting fraud. Very modern now.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, 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 widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web space hosting business niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the hosting merchants speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web site hosting retailer has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers must be bought. 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 unlikely for a cPanel hosting merchandiser to keep the cloud site hosting system at hand, because of the fact that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested too. Tons of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web space hosting systems. There aren't any open source web page hosting CP tools (operating with the cloud webspace hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, first of all you must devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the site hosting CP as well.
One server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Popular Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to perform on one server only. All website hosting services (web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular single-server web hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct a custom hosting CP that will operate perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Proper examples of custom developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom invented website hosting CPs are: Arcos Host, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware provision costs
The minimal contribution wanted, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting solutions can be found out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
