The pure thruth about the cloud web hosting service
Actually, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves individual hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate groups of very advanced servers. Each particular service group generates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one single server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The substantial cloud hosting hoax. Very popular these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in reality it is extremely perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common ignorance, the "cloud web page hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a shame! An immense disgrace. This is because in the web site hosting industry there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web hosting industry niche has no such regulatory institution. This is why the webspace hosting providers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web hosting provider has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is quite unbelievable, plenty of web hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web page hosting system at hand, because making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not an issue, lots of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting solutions. There are no open source hosting Control Panel interfaces (operating with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the web page hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Famous site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to function on one single web server exclusively. All website hosting services (disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these given single-server site hosting systems and website hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom web space hosting CP that will function unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Proper examples of in-house made cloud hosting systems with in-house devised web page hosting Control Panels are: HS Business Solutions, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimal investment required, only for the cloud site hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
