Interesting facts about the cloud hosting service
In general, the actual cloud hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-notch web servers. Each separate service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web hosting fraud. Very modern today.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting providers" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is because in the website hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. This is why the webspace hosting wholesalers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based website hosting merchandiser has a cloud website hosting platform at hand, which is quite unbelievable, lots of web servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting supplier to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, as creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous defect.
The absence of open source cloud site hosting environments
There are no open source cloud webspace hosting environments. There are no open source web space hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web site hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must develop one. In-house. Secondly, you must build the site hosting Control Panel too.
Single server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web space hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one web server solely. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective one-server web site hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source Control Panels
So, you have to make an in-house built webspace hosting Control Panel that will run flawlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house built cloud website hosting systems with in-house manufactured web page hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware provision fares
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
