Interesting details about the cloud web hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud web space hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent hosts of avant-garde web servers. Each specific service pack produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting deceit. Very common these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in fact it is greatly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the website hosting industry niche there are no regulations whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such administrative organization. That is why the web hosting corporations speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web page hosting corporation has a cloud website hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First off, let's find out what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting distributor to keep the cloud site hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not an issue, plenty of money must be spent too. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.
The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web hosting environments. There aren't any open source Control Panel tools (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, first you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web site hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based CPs
Today's popular website hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on one server only. All web space hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these specific single-server website hosting platforms and web space hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct a custom Control Panel that will function uncomplicatedly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper examples of in-house set up cloud website hosting systems with in-house created web site hosting CPs are: KeepSailingWeb, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
