The sheer truth about the cloud web space hosting solution
In general, the authentic cloud web space hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of leading edge web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The substantial cloud web hosting deceit. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-regulative institution. This is why the website hosting distributors speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting firms
If a cPanel-based site hosting trader has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, as developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified staff are not an issue, plenty of cash must be invested too. Stacks of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud site hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting solutions. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud web site hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the webspace hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on one single server solely. All web space hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web space hosting CPs
So, you have to invent an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed hosting Control Panels are: BizTalk Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment prices
The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
