The truth about the cloud site hosting service
In general, the authentic cloud webspace hosting solution serves separate hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, hosting CP, backup, and so on, on different bunches of leading edge servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving only the particular service and nothing beside it. They will all run as one single web server, sharing out the service's load in almost identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there should be: a web space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these individual service clusters will constitute the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The big cloud web hosting hoax. Quite common today.
There is so much confusion going around about cloud web hosting now. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only sound perplexing, but in fact it is very complicated. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud website hosting merchants" speculate feverishly, just to secure the client and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A huge shame. This is due to the fact that in the webspace hosting business niche there are no bylaws whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The website hosting industry has no such self-governing body. This is the reason why the web space hosting merchants speculate and tell lies openly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's see how much cloud hosting they indeed can distribute.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting providers
If a cPanel-based web space hosting company has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is quite improbable, many web hosting servers must be bought. Which is also not cheap. We will get back to that at the end of this review. First off, let's find out what the cloud complications are. So, it's quite unlikely for a cPanel hosting retailer to have the cloud hosting platform at hand, as developing one takes years. Even when time and the provision of proficient personnel are not a predicament, lots of money has to be spent as well. Stacks of money. What's more, cPanel is not open source. That's an enormous predicament.
The lack of open source cloud hosting platforms
There are no open source cloud website hosting environments. There are no open source web hosting CP GUIs (operating with the cloud website hosting system) as well. So, to have a cloud web page hosting platform at hand, first of all you must make one. In-house. Second of all, you have to develop the web space hosting CP as well.
Single server-based hosting CPs
Popular hosting CPs such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to perform on a single web server only. All web space hosting services (storage space, mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given one-server web page hosting platforms and web site hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source web page hosting Control Panels
So, you have to devise a custom web page hosting CP that will operate faultlessly and to include it within the cloud platform, as if it was an inherent part of it. Good examples of in-house made cloud website hosting solutions with in-house developed web space hosting CPs are: Websembly, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware provision fees
The smallest contribution needed, just for the cloud web hosting hardware equipment, amounts to somewhere between 60 thousand dollars and $80,000 USD. That's excluding the DDoS device, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you do know how many cloud website hosting platforms can be discovered out there... and, especially, why the web hosting sky is so blue... and practically unclouded!
