Curious details about the cloud webspace hosting solution
Essentially, the authentic cloud website hosting platform serves separate hosting services like storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent groups of leading edge web servers. Each single service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud site hosting platform.
The massive cloud web space hosting trick. Very popular at the moment.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting companies" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry there are no rules at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the web page hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting distributor has a cloud site hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, many web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, since setting up one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big predicament.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting systems
There are no open source cloud site hosting systems. There are no open source website hosting CP instruments (functioning with the cloud hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web site hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web space hosting Control Panels
Today's popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one web server only. All web page hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one single server where these respective one-server web site hosting systems and site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you have to establish an in-house built CP that will function impeccably and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Good instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting systems with in-house built hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum investment required, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud hosting platforms can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
