The precise truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the actual cloud webspace hosting platform serves separate hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on separate groups of very powerful servers. Each particular service set generates a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all operate as one web server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there must be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud webspace hosting system.
The colossal cloud hosting fraud. Quite common today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is very perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! A huge disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no tenets whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such regulatory organization. That is why the web site hosting distributors speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based website hosting company has a cloud website hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, plenty of hosting servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting supplier to have the cloud web hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that creating one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, plenty of money must be spent too. Stacks of cash. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The absence of open source cloud site hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting environments. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (working with the cloud website hosting platform) either. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first of all you must fabricate one. In-house. Secondly, you have to construct the web space hosting CP as well.
Single server-based web hosting Control Panels
Today's popular webspace hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on a single server solely. All site hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one web server where these respective single-server hosting platforms and hosting CPs are set up.
The deficiency of open source Control Panels
So, you have to build a custom web page hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt constituent of it. Good examples of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with custom devised CPs are: SupremeServer, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware provision prices
The minimum investment needed, only for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another fifteen-twenty thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so azure... and nearly cloudless!
