Interesting facts about the cloud website hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud web site hosting solution serves various hosting services like disk space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate stacks of top-notch servers. Each individual service set constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The massive cloud web site hosting fraud. Very common now.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. This is the reason why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web space hosting merchant has a cloud web hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, for building one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Stacks of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast downside.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web space hosting platforms. There are no open source hosting CP user interfaces (operating with the cloud web hosting solution) either. Hence, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. In the second place, you have to set up the website hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based CPs
Today's popular web page hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one server only. All web space hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on one server where these particular single-server webspace hosting platforms and web hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source site hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom web hosting CP that will run perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained component of it. Good instances of in-house manufactured cloud hosting solutions with in-house devised site hosting Control Panels are: Tango November Group Africa Ltd, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web page hosting hardware equipment rates
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud website hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
