Curious details about the cloud web site hosting solution
In general, the authentic cloud hosting platform serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different groups of top-notch servers. Each individual service group constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one single server, sharing the service's load in almost equipollent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.
The immense cloud web site hosting trick. Very modern nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,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 basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting wholesalers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is owing to the fact that in the site hosting business niche there are no rules at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such supervising organization. This is why the site hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in fact can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting supplier has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this review. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web hosting system at hand, due to the fact that fabricating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not an issue, lots of money must be invested as well. Piles of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big downside.
The deficiency of open source cloud web hosting environments
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source webspace hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, first you have to set up one. In-house. Secondly, you have to fabricate the web site hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Popular web site hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to operate on one single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting systems and web space hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must devise a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Proper examples of in-house developed cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured web space hosting Control Panels are: PCM-Web-Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The minimal investment needed, only for the cloud web page hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
