Interesting facts about the cloud web space hosting service
In general, the real cloud webspace hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate sets of high-end servers. Each separate service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to 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, and so on. All these different service clusters will construct the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting hoax. Quite widespread nowadays.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is excessively perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting merchandisers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry niche has no such regulatory body. This is the reason why the web page hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, multiple web hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud web space hosting system at hand, because building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge predicament.
The shortage of open source cloud web page hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting environments. There are no open source site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud webspace hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting platform at hand, first of all you must create one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the webspace hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based CPs
Popular hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are constructed to work on a single web server only. All webspace hosting services (data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one server where these particular single-server website hosting systems and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source CPs
So, you must fabricate an in-house built CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inbuilt component of it. Appropriate instances of custom invented cloud website hosting systems with in-house developed hosting Control Panels are: OgniTech, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware provision charges
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
