The full truth about the cloud web hosting service
In general, the genuine cloud web hosting solution serves distinct hosting services like web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different bunches of very advanced web servers. Each different service group makes a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all operate as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will make the so-called cloud web site hosting platform.
The great cloud website hosting deceit. Very modern these days.
There is so much misunderstanding circulating around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web site hosting merchants" speculate strongly, just to get hold of the client and his/her 5 bucks per month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is owing to the fact that in the web site hosting business niche there are no tenets at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. That is why the hosting merchandisers speculate and lie blatantly (quite bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their customers. Especially the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they indeed can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting firms
If a cPanel-based website hosting trader has a cloud hosting platform at hand, which is quite improbable, numerous hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel hosting vendor to have the cloud site hosting platform at hand, since developing one requires years. Even when time and the provision of a competent staff are not a predicament, a lot of money must be spent as well. Piles of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous downside.
The lack of open source cloud hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud website hosting systems. There are no open source webspace hosting Control Panel user interfaces (operating with the cloud webspace hosting platform) as well. Therefore, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first you have to build one. In-house. Second of all, you have to devise the web hosting Control Panel too.
One server-based Control Panels
Contemporary hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to function on one web server only. All webspace hosting services (web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one web server where these particular one-server web site hosting systems and web hosting Control Panels are set up.
The deficiency of open source webspace hosting Control Panels
So, you must create an in-house built web space hosting CP that will run uncomplicatedly and to integrate it within the cloud system, as if it was an inherent part of it. Appropriate instances of in-house manufactured cloud website hosting systems with in-house created web hosting CPs are: NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment costs
The smallest investment wanted, just for the cloud web site hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 USD and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000. Now you do know how many cloud web page hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so azure... and practically cloudless!
