Curious facts about the cloud website hosting solution
Essentially, the actual cloud web page hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as web space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of high-end servers. Each individual service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing the service's load in practically equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting fraud. Very common today.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is because in the web page hosting business there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. This is the reason why the webspace hosting suppliers speculate and lie openly (very directly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based site hosting provider has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's explore what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud site hosting platform at hand, in that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web space hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web space hosting environments. There are no open source site hosting CP instruments (running with the cloud web site hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to establish the web space hosting CP as well.
Single server-based webspace hosting CPs
Modern CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to perform on one single web server only. All web space hosting services (data storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these given one-server webspace hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural component of it. Proper examples of in-house invented cloud hosting systems with in-house developed Control Panels are: My hosting company, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud site hosting solutions can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
