Curious details about the cloud website hosting service
Essentially, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different groups of leading edge web servers. Each separate service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will compose the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The colossal cloud web site hosting scam. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting distributors" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web site hosting business niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the website hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting traders
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting merchandiser has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, because developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP devices (working with the cloud web space hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to operate on a single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on a single server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web space hosting CPs
So, you have to devise a custom web site hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of in-house set up cloud website hosting platforms with in-house built Control Panels are: INCSWEB, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimum contribution needed, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting systems can be found out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
