The whole truth about the cloud site hosting service
Essentially, the authentic cloud web page hosting platform serves different hosting services such as disk space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, webspace hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different groups of very advanced web servers. Each specific service pack forms a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are devoted to serving exclusively the given service and nothing apart from it. They will all function as one server, sharing the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a disk storage cluster, an email cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web space hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will construct the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The colossal cloud site hosting scam. Very widespread at present.
There is so much speculation circulating around about cloud web hosting at present. 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. Based on this widespread unawareness, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks a month. What a disgrace! A huge disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry niche there are no principles at all. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The web space hosting industry niche has no such self-regulative organization. That is why the website hosting corporations speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's examine how much cloud hosting they actually can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting firms
If a cPanel-based hosting trader has a cloud website 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 find out what the cloud problems are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting company to keep the cloud hosting system at hand, in that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of competent personnel are not a predicament, a lot of cash has to be invested too. Mountains of money. Furthermore, cPanel is not open source. That's a huge disadvantage.
The shortage of open source cloud web hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud web page hosting platforms. There aren't any open source site hosting Control Panel GUIs (working with the cloud site hosting platform) either. So, to have a cloud website hosting solution at hand, first you must create one. In-house. Secondly, you have to devise the Control Panel too.
Single server-based webspace hosting CPs
Contemporary Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are developed to run on a single server solely. All hosting services (data storage, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one server where these specific single-server webspace hosting platforms and site hosting CPs are set up.
The absence of open source hosting CPs
So, you have to set up a custom webspace hosting Control Panel that will work perfectly and to accommodate it within the cloud system, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Proper examples of custom created cloud hosting platforms with custom devised Control Panels are: MarbleHost.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware equipment prices
The minimal investment demanded, just for the cloud web page hosting hardware provision, is equivalent to somewhere between 60 thousand 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 site hosting systems can be discovered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and nearly cloudless!
