The truth about the cloud web hosting solution
Actually, the genuine cloud web page hosting solution serves separate hosting services like data storage, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, statistics, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on different sets of very advanced web servers. Each individual service set makes a cluster. All the servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving solely the specific service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in nearly equal proportions. If there is an authentic cloud web hosting service, there has to be: a storage space cluster, an electronic mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a site hosting CP cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these autonomous service clusters will build the so-called cloud web hosting system.
The great cloud hosting fraud. Quite common these days.
There is so much speculation revolving around about cloud web hosting today. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear perplexing, but actually it is excessively complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this common unawareness, the "cloud web space hosting firms" speculate eagerly, just to secure the client and his/her five bucks per month. What a shame! A great disgrace. This is due to the fact that in the hosting industry there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web site hosting industry has no such regulative organization. This is the reason why the hosting corporations speculate and tell lies overtly (quite directly, actually) to their customers. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's determine how much cloud hosting they in fact can supply.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" webspace hosting corporations
If a cPanel-based web site hosting merchant has a cloud web site hosting system at hand, which is quite unlikely, many web hosting servers have to be paid for. Which is also not cheap. We will return to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud troubles are. So, it's quite unbelievable for a cPanel hosting trader to keep the cloud webspace hosting system at hand, since making one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, lots of money has to be invested as well. Heaps of money. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a vast inconvenience.
The lack of open source cloud web hosting systems
There are no open source cloud website hosting solutions. There aren't any open source web site hosting Control Panel user interfaces (running with the cloud web page hosting solution) as well. Hence, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, in the first place you must invent one. In-house. Secondly, you have to make the webspace hosting CP too.
Single server-based web hosting CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are manufactured to function on a single server only. All web space hosting services (disk storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, web site hosting CP, backup, etc.) are being served simultaneously on one single server where these specific single-server webspace hosting systems and webspace hosting CPs are installed.
The lack of open source web space hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built web page hosting Control Panel that will perform perfectly and to incorporate it within the cloud platform, as if it was an ingrained part of it. Good examples of custom created cloud hosting systems with custom constructed website hosting CPs are: WebDaytonaHosting, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud web hosting hardware equipment fares
The minimal contribution needed, 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 tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you are well aware of how many cloud site hosting platforms can be found out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and practically cloudless!
