The truth about the cloud hosting service
In general, the authentic cloud web space hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on different bunches of leading edge servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in nearly identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a data storage cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud web page hosting platform.
The mammoth cloud website hosting swindle. Very popular these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but actually it is greatly perplexing. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal ignorance, the "cloud hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is owing to the fact that in the hosting business there are no regulations at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. That is the reason why the web hosting corporations speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they in reality can offer.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web space hosting distributor has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, many web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting distributor to have the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, due to the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of experienced personnel are not an issue, a lot of money has to be spent as well. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web site hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source web page hosting Control Panel GUIs (functioning with the cloud website hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, in the first place you have to build one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the web space hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web hosting CPs
Famous web page hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to run on one web server only. All webspace hosting services (storage space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these respective one-server web hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom hosting CP that will operate unproblematically and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house created cloud web hosting systems with custom set up CPs are: Boulter Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision fares
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud web hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and practically unclouded!
