Interesting details about the cloud web page hosting service
Essentially, the genuine cloud web site hosting platform serves various hosting services like disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of very powerful web servers. Each particular service pack makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The mammoth cloud web hosting hoax. Quite widespread at present.
There is so much speculation going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the web site hosting business niche there are no ordinances whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. This is why the web site hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (quite directly, in fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web page hosting retailer has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.
The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web site hosting solutions. There are no open source webspace hosting CP devices (functioning with the cloud site hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, in the first place you have to fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the web space hosting CP as well.
Single server-based website hosting Control Panels
Popular CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on a single server exclusively. All web site hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one server where these given one-server site hosting platforms and website hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source hosting Control Panels
So, you must make an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will work flawlessly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of in-house developed cloud website hosting systems with custom invented web space hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal investment needed, just for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. 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 blue... and almost cloudless!
