Interesting details about the cloud hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on, on autonomous sets of top-quality web servers. Each specific service pack makes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a data storage cluster, an email 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 generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web space hosting business there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such regulative organization. This is why the web space hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting companies
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this review. First, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The absence of open source cloud website hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source web hosting Control Panel devices (running with the cloud hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first you must build one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the site hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Famous website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to run on a single web server solely. All web space hosting services (storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular single-server web page hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must devise a custom web hosting Control Panel that will work impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Good instances of in-house made cloud web hosting platforms with in-house devised website hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
