The precise truth about the cloud hosting service
Actually, the real cloud web hosting solution serves various hosting services like data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous bunches of very powerful web servers. Each particular service pack constitutes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all run as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there should be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these different service clusters will beget the so-called cloud web page hosting system.
The great cloud web page hosting trick. Quite popular today.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widely spread ignorance, the "cloud web hosting providers" speculate strongly, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a shame! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web page hosting industry there are no principles at all. The domain industry has ICANN. The webspace hosting industry niche has no such regulative institution. This is the reason why the hosting merchandisers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's learn how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting wholesalers
If a cPanel-based web hosting vendor has a cloud web site hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, a lot of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this article. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, as setting up one takes years. Even when time and the provision of an expert team are not an issue, lots of money has to be spent as well. Piles of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The absence of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud site hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud site hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud site hosting solution at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Second of all, you have to invent the web site hosting CP as well.
One server-based web space hosting Control Panels
Today's popular Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to operate on one server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these respective single-server web space hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to create a custom web space hosting CP that will work unproblematically and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house devised cloud website hosting platforms with custom devised website hosting Control Panels are: OzeVision Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware equipment fees
The smallest contribution wanted, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and almost cloudless!
