The whole truth about the cloud site hosting service
Essentially, the actual cloud site hosting platform serves distinct hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on independent sets of leading edge web servers. Each different service group creates a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in approximately equal proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud web space hosting platform.
The huge cloud hosting deceit. Very common today.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this common unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting merchants" speculate fervently, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great shame. This is because in the web space hosting business there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such regulatory body. That is the reason why the website hosting traders speculate and tell lies openly (very directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's uncover how much cloud hosting they in fact can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web hosting firm has a cloud site hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, as building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent team are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested too. Piles of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge downside.
The lack of open source cloud webspace hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web space hosting environments. There are no open source hosting CP instruments (working with the cloud webspace hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you must establish the CP as well.
One server-based web page hosting CPs
Modern hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to operate on a single server solely. All web hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on a single server where these specific one-server web site hosting systems and web space hosting Control Panels are set up.
The lack of open source webspace hosting CPs
So, you must invent a custom hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Proper instances of in-house made cloud hosting platforms with custom constructed website hosting CPs are: Flashpoint Media Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision charges
The smallest investment needed, only for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting systems can be chanced on out there... and, above all, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
