The sheer truth about the cloud site hosting solution
Actually, the real cloud hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc., on individual groups of top-quality servers. Each single service pack constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the given service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will generate the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud web hosting scam. Very common these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common ignorance, the "cloud web space hosting suppliers" speculate strongly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! An enormous shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such self-governing institution. That is the reason why the web page hosting retailers speculate and lie openly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, a lot of web servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that inventing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, plenty of cash has to be spent too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud site hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to build one. In-house. Secondly, you must fabricate the web space hosting CP as well.
One server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Famous web site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on a single server exclusively. All web page hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific single-server web space hosting systems and site hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source site hosting CPs
So, you have to invent an in-house built site hosting CP that will run faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Suitable examples of custom made cloud web hosting solutions with in-house manufactured website hosting CPs are: Papua Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
