Curious details about the cloud web site hosting solution
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent stacks of top-quality servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in practically equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web site hosting fraud. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no norms at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the hosting suppliers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based site hosting provider has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, for constructing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be spent too. Mountains of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense defect.
The lack of open source cloud site hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel devices (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must establish one. In-house. Secondly, you must create the web site hosting CP too.
Single server-based webspace hosting CPs
Modern Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these given single-server web site hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up a custom hosting CP that will run unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Appropriate examples of in-house constructed cloud web hosting platforms with in-house built web space hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum contribution required, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
