Interesting facts about the cloud website hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud web page hosting solution serves different hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web space hosting CP, backup, and so on, on separate hosts of top-notch web servers. Each separate service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving exclusively the given service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one server, sharing the service's load in approximately equipollent proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a data storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these different service clusters will make the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The great cloud web site hosting scam. Very widespread these days.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but in reality it is very complicated. The majority of the people are not at all aware of what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this widely spread unawareness, the "cloud hosting suppliers" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a shame! A great shame. This is owing to the fact that in the site hosting industry niche there are no bylaws at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry niche has no such legislative body. This is why the web hosting companies speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they in reality can supply.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web site hosting suppliers
If a cPanel-based hosting company has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is very unlikely, plenty of hosting servers must be purchased. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this story. First off, let's find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting corporation to keep the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, as establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, lots of money must be spent too. Stacks of money. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's an immense problem.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting platforms
There aren't any open source cloud web site hosting systems. There are no open source site hosting CP instruments (operating with the cloud web space hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud web hosting system at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. In the second place, you must establish the CP as well.
Single server-based Control Panels
Today's popular web page hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on one single web server exclusively. All hosting services (disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served at the same time on one web server where these given single-server webspace hosting systems and web page hosting CPs are installed.
The shortage of open source web site hosting CPs
So, you have to devise an in-house built Control Panel that will perform uncomplicatedly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good instances of custom created cloud hosting platforms with in-house built Control Panels are: Heartland Web Hosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware provision charges
The minimal contribution needed, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60,000 dollars and 80,000 USD. That's omitting the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud site hosting systems can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and practically unclouded!
