The precise truth about the cloud web space hosting solution
Actually, the actual cloud web space hosting platform serves separate hosting services like data storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc., on independent sets of very powerful servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all perform as one single server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there must be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web space hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The mammoth cloud site hosting scam. Very widespread at the moment.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but actually it is highly perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud hosting merchants" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks a month. What a disgrace! A great disgrace. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such supervising institution. This is why the web space hosting providers speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Particularly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchandisers
If a cPanel-based web hosting wholesaler has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, loads of web servers have to be bought. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. First off, let's examine what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting system at hand, since creating one demands years. Even when time and the provision of expert personnel are not an issue, plenty of money has to be spent too. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge obstacle.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud site hosting platforms. There are no open source web page hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud webspace hosting solution) either. Therefore, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to construct one. In-house. In the second place, you have to build the web space hosting CP too.
Single server-based CPs
Modern website hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to function on a single web server solely. All hosting services (disk storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the same time on one single server where these particular one-server web hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source web site hosting Control Panels
So, you have to invent an in-house built website hosting CP that will operate flawlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom invented cloud website hosting platforms with in-house made web page hosting CPs are: IcaHost.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal contribution demanded, only for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and $80,000. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so turquoise... and nearly cloudless!
