The sheer truth about the cloud web hosting solution
Essentially, the actual cloud web site hosting solution serves different hosting services like disk space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual stacks of very powerful web servers. Each different service group constitutes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all perform as one server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there must be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these independent service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The mammoth cloud site hosting hoax. Very popular these days.
There is so much confusion revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in reality it is supremely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this universal unawareness, the "cloud webspace hosting suppliers" speculate intensely, just to secure the client and his/her 5 dollars a month. What a shame! An immense shame. This is due to the fact that in the site hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative institution. That is the reason why the web space hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (quite directly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they actually can furnish.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" site hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based webspace hosting provider has a cloud web page hosting system at hand, which is very improbable, loads of hosting servers have to be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First, let's examine what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting vendor to keep the cloud website hosting system at hand, for devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an experienced team are not a predicament, loads of cash has to be invested too. Heaps of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense downside.
The absence of open source cloud web site hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting systems. There aren't any open source web space hosting Control Panel tools (running with the cloud site hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first of all you have to invent one. In-house. Second of all, you must develop the hosting CP as well.
One server-based web site hosting Control Panels
Today's popular webspace hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are meant to perform on a single server exclusively. All web space hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served at the very same time on one single server where these respective one-server web space hosting platforms and web space hosting Control Panels are installed.
The shortage of open source web space hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom web space hosting Control Panel that will operate perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent constituent of it. Suitable instances of custom made cloud hosting platforms with custom built hosting CPs are: WebHost-ing.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web space hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal investment required, just for the cloud hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud web space hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
