The sheer truth about the cloud web hosting service
Actually, the genuine cloud webspace hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like storage space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual bunches of avant-garde web servers. Each different service set constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The gigantic cloud webspace hosting hoax. Quite modern nowadays.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting firms" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. That is why the web page hosting retailers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based hosting wholesaler has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, because building one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a problem, plenty of cash must be spent too. Stacks of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge defect.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting solutions. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel instruments (working with the cloud web page hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web site hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based website hosting CPs
Famous web space hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to operate on a single server exclusively. All hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these respective one-server web space hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.
The absence of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom site hosting Control Panel that will function impeccably and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an ingrained constituent of it. Proper instances of custom built cloud website hosting solutions with custom built webspace hosting CPs are: Hosting for All, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud website hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
