The absolute truth about the cloud web site hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud site hosting platform serves various hosting services such as web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous stacks of very advanced servers. Each separate service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing else. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The huge cloud web site hosting fraud. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud webspace hosting retailers" speculate feverishly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A big disgrace. This is because in the webspace hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such legislative institution. That is the reason why the web hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies overtly (very bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" hosting vendors
If a cPanel-based web page hosting retailer has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is very unlikely, a lot of servers have to be ensured. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this article. First, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web space hosting system at hand, in that creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a problem, plenty of cash has to be invested as well. Mountains of cash. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a great predicament.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web site hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web site hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to make one. In-house. In the second place, you must build the web hosting CP too.
Single server-based Control Panels
Modern CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to operate on one web server solely. All web site hosting services (disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on a single server where these particular one-server site hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source web page hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to incorporate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible component of it. Suitable instances of custom manufactured cloud website hosting platforms with in-house made website hosting CPs are: Millenium Networks, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The minimum investment demanded, only for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so blue... and almost unclouded!
