The sheer truth about the cloud hosting service
In general, the authentic cloud site hosting platform serves different hosting services such as storage space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different hosts of leading edge servers. Each single service set creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The gigantic cloud hosting swindle. Quite widespread these days.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but actually it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud hosting corporations" speculate fiercely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting industry there are no tenets at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such self-regulative organization. That is the reason why the web page hosting companies speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web page hosting provider has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple servers must be secured. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, owing to the fact that making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, plenty of money has to be invested as well. Stacks of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud web space hosting systems
There are no open source cloud hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web site hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud hosting solution at hand, first of all you have to establish one. In-house. In the second place, you have to make the web space hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based Control Panels
Today's popular webspace hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to perform on one web server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single server where these particular single-server site hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom web hosting CP that will perform faultlessly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom created cloud web hosting solutions with custom made CPs are: DuoServers Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and 80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost unclouded!
