Interesting details about the cloud hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud hosting solution serves different hosting services like storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent packs of very advanced web servers. Each different service pack creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will form the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The enormous cloud website hosting hoax. Quite popular today.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting now. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. Based on this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting firms" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web space hosting industry has no such supervisory body. This is the reason why the web page hosting distributors speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, in fact) to their clients. Especially 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" webspace hosting traders
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud hosting system at hand, which is very unlikely, loads of web hosting servers have to be obtained. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud web page hosting platform at hand, since constructing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a problem, a lot of money has to be spent too. Piles of money. On top of that, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The lack of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud hosting platforms. There aren't any open source site hosting CP interfaces (working with the cloud web space hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud site hosting platform at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you must construct the Control Panel as well.
One server-based web page hosting Control Panels
Today's popular web page hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single web server exclusively. All hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on a single web server where these respective single-server website hosting systems and web page hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source website hosting CPs
So, you must create a custom web space hosting CP that will operate impeccably and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural part of it. Proper examples of in-house created cloud web hosting platforms with custom constructed web page hosting CPs are: CabbageTree Solutions, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between 60,000 dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost unclouded!
