The truth about the cloud web page hosting solution
Actually, the real cloud web site hosting solution serves various hosting services such as disk storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual hosts of leading edge servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one web server, sharing the service's load in practically the same proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk space cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a website hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will create the so-called cloud web space hosting system.
The colossal cloud website hosting hoax. Very widespread these days.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at the moment. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is intensely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud hosting providers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is because in the website hosting industry niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is the reason why the web space hosting retailers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's discover how much cloud hosting they indeed can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting firms
If a cPanel-based web space hosting vendor has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud complications are. So, it's very improbable for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to have the cloud website hosting system at hand, for developing one demands years. Even when time and the provision of a professional team are not an issue, a lot of money must be invested as well. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a great defect.
The absence of open source cloud hosting solutions
There are no open source cloud site hosting platforms. There aren't any open source web space hosting CP interfaces (running with the cloud hosting system) either. Therefore, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, first of all you must build one. In-house. In the second place, you have to invent the CP too.
Single server-based web page hosting CPs
Modern web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are intended to operate on a single web server exclusively. All site hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, CP, backup, and so on) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these specific one-server webspace hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The absence of open source site hosting CPs
So, you must fabricate an in-house built site hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible part of it. Good instances of custom constructed cloud web hosting solutions with custom manufactured webspace hosting CPs are: Speedy Mice, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud webspace hosting hardware provision rates
The smallest investment required, just for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS appliance, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting platforms can be detected out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually cloudless!
