The facts about the cloud web site hosting solution
Essentially, the genuine cloud site hosting solution serves individual hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous bunches of high-end web servers. Each separate service group makes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing else. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these individual service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The great cloud web site hosting scam. Very popular these days.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is extremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting companies" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the webspace hosting business niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such regulative body. This is the reason why the web hosting firms speculate and lie blatantly (very directly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web hosting supplier has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, many web hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, because fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a predicament, lots of money must be invested too. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud web site hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web page hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud web hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web page hosting system at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must construct the web space hosting CP as well.
One server-based webspace hosting Control Panels
Popular website hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on one web server only. All hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective single-server web page hosting systems and hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate an in-house built Control Panel that will operate faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house constructed cloud hosting solutions with custom built web site hosting Control Panels are: Mardec Webhost, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision rates
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting systems can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
