The facts about the cloud website hosting service
Actually, the real cloud webspace hosting platform serves various hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, etc., on individual hosts of high-end web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will render the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The big cloud web site hosting fraud. Very widespread nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but in fact it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting wholesalers" speculate intensely, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A vast disgrace. This is because in the hosting business niche there are no principles whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry has no such supervising institution. This is why the web space hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, actually) to their clients. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they in reality can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based hosting vendor has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, as fabricating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a highly qualified team are not a predicament, a lot of money has to be spent too. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great disadvantage.
The lack of open source cloud web site hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud web page hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel user interfaces (functioning with the cloud site hosting solution) either. So, to have a cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Second of all, you have to set up the web site hosting CP as well.
Single server-based site hosting CPs
Today's popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to run on one web server only. All web site hosting services (web space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web space hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on a single web server where these specific single-server hosting platforms and web hosting Control Panels are installed.
The deficiency of open source webspace hosting CPs
So, you must set up a custom site hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent component of it. Appropriate examples of in-house devised cloud web hosting systems with custom developed site hosting Control Panels are: iHost Empires, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision expenses
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be chanced on out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and virtually cloudless!
