The truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the real cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like storage space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, web page hosting CP, backup, and so on, on autonomous stacks of very advanced servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the given service and nothing else. They will all perform as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly the same proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there would be: a web space cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a site hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud website hosting system.
The great cloud website hosting deceit. Very common at the moment.
There is so much confusion circulating around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem perplexing, but in reality it is extremely complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web page hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A vast shame. This is due to the fact that in the web hosting business niche there are no enactments at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such self-controlling body. This is why the hosting traders speculate and lie openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Chiefly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can provide.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web page hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web page hosting trader has a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, which is quite unlikely, numerous web servers have to be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. First off, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting provider to have the cloud web page hosting system at hand, due to the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, lots of money has to be invested too. Tons of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge drawback.
The absence of open source cloud web page hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There aren't any open source web page hosting Control Panel GUIs (running with the cloud hosting system) either. So, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you must devise the site hosting CP too.
One server-based site hosting Control Panels
Popular webspace hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are devised to work on one server exclusively. All web site hosting services (web space, electronic mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on a single server where these particular one-server web space hosting systems and hosting CPs are set up.
The shortage of open source web hosting CPs
So, you have to develop a custom website hosting CP that will work faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house built cloud hosting solutions with custom set up web page hosting CPs are: wouap-hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud website hosting hardware provision expenses
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80 thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud hosting solutions can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
