The facts about the cloud web space hosting service
Essentially, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc., on different sets of leading edge web servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.
The gigantic cloud website hosting scam. Quite common at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this popular unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting merchandisers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such supervising body. That is why the web site hosting companies speculate and lie openly (very directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web page hosting company has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite improbable, lots of web hosting servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this review. First, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud web site hosting system at hand, because developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting environments
There are no open source cloud web space hosting systems. There are no open source webspace hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud web page hosting platform) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. In the second place, you have to fabricate the web space hosting CP too.
One server-based hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to work on one server exclusively. All web hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these specific single-server web site hosting platforms and web site hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you have to fabricate a custom web page hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of custom developed cloud hosting solutions with custom invented webspace hosting Control Panels are: Tango November Group Africa Ltd, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
