The truth about the cloud web site hosting service
Actually, the actual cloud web site hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, etc., on separate hosts of high-end web servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would 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 generate the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting swindle. Very common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is intensely complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting retailers" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the web page hosting industry niche there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry niche has no such supervisory body. That is the reason why the web page hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud hosting they in reality can distribute.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting trader has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, numerous web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud site hosting system at hand, owing to the fact that setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The deficiency of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting environments. There aren't any open source website hosting CP tools (working with the cloud web hosting platform) as well. So, to have a cloud website hosting system at hand, first of all you have to fabricate one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the web site hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based CPs
Contemporary hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to run on one single server solely. All web space hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served concurrently on a single web server where these particular one-server web site hosting systems and website hosting CPs are set up.
The lack of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you must construct an in-house built hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate examples of in-house invented cloud website hosting platforms with custom constructed web page hosting Control Panels are: HD Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud webspace hosting solutions can be detected out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
