The absolute truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the actual cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different groups of very powerful servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will build the so-called cloud web site hosting system.
The great cloud web site hosting deceit. Very common nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud site hosting vendors" speculate fiercely, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the web page hosting business there are no laws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such self-regulative body. That is why the webspace hosting distributors speculate and lie overtly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting provider has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of web hosting servers must be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's examine what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient staff are not an issue, loads of cash has to be invested as well. Piles of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous disadvantage.
The absence of open source cloud web page hosting environments
There are no open source cloud site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud web page hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you have to make one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the site hosting CP as well.
One server-based webspace hosting CPs
Contemporary CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to operate on one single server exclusively. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these respective one-server web hosting platforms and website hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source web space hosting CPs
So, you have to invent a custom web hosting Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to include it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of custom developed cloud website hosting solutions with in-house devised webspace hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment expenses
The smallest contribution wanted, only for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and nearly unclouded!
