The sheer truth about the cloud web page hosting service
In general, the real cloud webspace hosting platform serves separate hosting services like web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of deluxe web servers. Each separate service set constitutes a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in nearly equipollent proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The substantial cloud webspace hosting fraud. Very common now.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is highly complicated. Most of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. Based on this universal unawareness, the "cloud web hosting corporations" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is because in the site hosting industry there are no statutes whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. That is why the hosting providers speculate and lie blatantly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web site hosting firm has a cloud hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous hosting servers have to be secured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting firm to have the cloud webspace hosting platform at hand, as making one takes years. Even when time and the provision of professional personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be spent as well. Tons of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous drawback.
The shortage of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web page hosting solutions. There aren't any open source webspace hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud site hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web hosting solution at hand, first you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the webspace hosting CP as well.
One server-based web site hosting CPs
Today's popular webspace hosting CPs like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are created to function on one single server solely. All web hosting services (data storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single web server where these specific one-server hosting platforms and hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source site hosting CPs
So, you must make an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Suitable examples of custom created cloud website hosting solutions with in-house set up web page hosting Control Panels are: AIDA Host, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision prices
The smallest investment required, only for the cloud webspace hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be encountered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and virtually unclouded!
