The full truth about the cloud website hosting service
Actually, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of top-quality servers. Each separate service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing else. They will all run as one web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will make the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.
The big cloud web site hosting trick. Quite modern at the moment.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud website hosting vendors" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting industry there are no decrees at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such self-governing organization. This is the reason why the web site hosting corporations speculate and lie overtly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting retailer has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, lots of web servers must be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, because inventing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional staff are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Tons of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big inconvenience.
The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web site hosting solutions. There are no open source webspace hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. In the second place, you must set up the web space hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web page hosting CPs
Famous web space hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to perform on one server only. All webspace hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these specific single-server website hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct a custom web space hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house made cloud website hosting platforms with custom invented CPs are: NameHost.us - Name Hosting In One Business by William Nabaza, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision costs
The smallest contribution demanded, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
