The facts about the cloud website hosting service
In general, the real cloud web page hosting platform serves distinct hosting services such as data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous sets of high-end web servers. Each specific service set produces a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all run as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these independent service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting platform.
The great cloud hosting fraud. Very popular at present.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her five dollars a month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business there are no rules whatsoever. The domain industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is the reason why the web page hosting companies speculate and tell lies overtly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting firms
If a cPanel-based site hosting wholesaler has a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, which is very unbelievable, loads of web servers have to be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to have the cloud website hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that setting up one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced staff are not a problem, a lot of money must be invested as well. Stacks of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast drawback.
The deficiency of open source cloud webspace hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud web hosting platforms. There are no open source web space hosting Control Panel tools (working with the cloud web site hosting solution) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web site hosting platform at hand, first you have to create one. In-house. Second of all, you must devise the web site hosting Control Panel as well.
One server-based web space hosting CPs
Contemporary web site hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are made to perform on a single web server exclusively. All web hosting services (disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one server where these particular one-server website hosting platforms and CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you must establish an in-house built web page hosting Control Panel that will function faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud hosting systems with custom manufactured Control Panels are: Bakhtiar Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you do know how many cloud webspace hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
