The whole truth about the cloud hosting service
Essentially, the authentic cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on separate stacks of top-notch servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing else. They will all function as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will form the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.
The colossal cloud site hosting hoax. Quite popular today.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is supremely complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting suppliers" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! An enormous disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business niche there are no stipulations at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such self-governing body. This is why the hosting traders speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based site hosting distributor has a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, many hosting servers must be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for devising one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, plenty of money has to be spent as well. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big problem.
The deficiency of open source cloud hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud web space hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web site hosting system at hand, first you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to invent the web site hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Modern web page hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to work on one single web server only. All web hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one single web server where these respective single-server site hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you have to set up a custom hosting Control Panel that will run uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good examples of in-house constructed cloud web hosting systems with in-house invented webspace hosting Control Panels are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's excluding the DDoS appliance, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
