The absolute truth about the cloud website hosting service
In general, the actual cloud website hosting platform serves various hosting services like web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on independent packs of avant-garde servers. Each individual service group generates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the specific service and nothing else. They will all work as one single server, sharing the service's load in approximately the same proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will render the so-called cloud webspace hosting platform.
The big cloud site hosting scam. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in reality it is excessively complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal ignorance, the "cloud site hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the web site hosting business there are no enactments whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. That is the reason why the web site hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in fact can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting wholesaler has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of web servers have to be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting merchant to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, since making one demands years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a problem, lots of cash must be invested as well. Tons of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud webspace hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source web site hosting CP user interfaces (working with the cloud web site hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, first of all you must set up one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the hosting Control Panel as well.
Single server-based web page hosting CPs
Modern web space hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on a single web server only. All webspace hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server web space hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.
The lack of open source webspace hosting CPs
So, you must devise a custom web hosting CP that will work uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud web hosting solutions with in-house developed web space hosting Control Panels are: 151HOSTING, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision fares
The smallest contribution needed, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
