The absolute truth about the cloud web page hosting solution
In general, the real cloud website hosting platform serves individual hosting services like disk storage, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on independent hosts of top-notch servers. Each different service set creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the given service and nothing aside from it. They will all function as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there should be: a disk storage cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a webspace hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will beget the so-called cloud hosting platform.
The enormous cloud webspace hosting fraud. Very widespread nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting at present. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only sound complicated, but actually it is very perplexing. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal ignorance, the "cloud web site hosting companies" speculate feverishly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars a month. What a disgrace! A big shame. This is due to the fact that in the hosting business there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry niche has ICANN. The hosting industry has no such administrative body. That is the reason why the hosting vendors speculate and lie openly (quite directly, actually) to their clients. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they actually can offer.
The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting companies
If a cPanel-based web page hosting merchant has a cloud web page hosting solution at hand, which is very improbable, plenty of web servers must be purchased. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting firm to keep the cloud web site hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that establishing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of a proficient team are not a problem, loads of cash has to be spent as well. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud site hosting solutions
There aren't any open source cloud web hosting platforms. There aren't any open source webspace hosting CP devices (running with the cloud web site hosting system) either. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting solution at hand, in the first place you have to set up one. In-house. Second of all, you must fabricate the site hosting CP too.
Single server-based web site hosting CPs
Popular site hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are built to work on a single web server solely. All web site hosting services (web space, email, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single web server where these specific single-server webspace hosting systems and web site hosting Control Panels are set up.
The shortage of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to make a custom hosting Control Panel that will run faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inbuilt part of it. Good instances of custom created cloud hosting solutions with in-house devised site hosting CPs are: EXPRESShostings, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web site hosting hardware equipment fares
The smallest investment needed, just for the cloud site hosting hardware provision, equals somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and eighty thousand dollars. That's omitting the DDoS mechanism, which is another 15-20,000 dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web hosting systems can be found out there... and, especially, why the hosting sky is so turquoise... and almost cloudless!
