The whole truth about the cloud site hosting solution
Essentially, the real cloud web space hosting platform serves individual hosting services such as web space, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, site hosting CP, backup, and so on, on individual groups of very advanced web servers. Each individual service group creates a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing apart from it. They will all operate as one server, sharing out the service's load in almost equal proportions. If there is a real cloud web hosting service, there would be: a storage space cluster, a mail cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a stats cluster, a web hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these separate service clusters will form the so-called cloud website hosting platform.
The colossal cloud web space hosting hoax. Quite common nowadays.
There is so much misunderstanding revolving around about cloud web hosting these days. As you can perceive,cloud hosting does not only appear complicated, but in reality it is very complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the wings of this universal unawareness, the "cloud site hosting providers" speculate fiercely, just to secure the customer and his/her five bucks per month. What a disgrace! A vast shame. This is because in the web page hosting business niche there are no rules whatsoever. The domain name industry has ICANN. The site hosting industry has no such supervisory organization. This is the reason why the site hosting merchandisers speculate and lie overtly (quite bluntly, in fact) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's check how much cloud hosting they actually can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" website hosting merchants
If a cPanel-based web page hosting provider has a cloud webspace hosting solution at hand, which is very unbelievable, numerous web servers have to be paid for. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this story. But before we do, let's explore what the cloud predicaments are. So, it's quite improbable for a cPanel hosting retailer to keep the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, in that building one requires years. Even when time and the provision of highly qualified personnel are not an issue, loads of cash must be spent as well. Piles of cash. Plus, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The deficiency of open source cloud web page hosting systems
There aren't any open source cloud site hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting CP user interfaces (running with the cloud site hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud webspace hosting system at hand, first of all you must construct one. In-house. Secondly, you have to build the Control Panel as well.
One server-based Control Panels
Contemporary hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to work on one single web server solely. All webspace hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, webspace hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on) are being served at one and the same time on one web server where these respective one-server website hosting systems and web hosting CPs are installed.
The deficiency of open source website hosting Control Panels
So, you have to construct an in-house built web site hosting Control Panel that will perform faultlessly and to integrate it within the cloud platform, as if it was a natural constituent of it. Appropriate examples of custom devised cloud website hosting platforms with custom created CPs are: XYNADOO.COM, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud site hosting hardware provision fees
The minimum contribution needed, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, is equivalent to somewhere between $60,000 USD and 80,000 dollars. That's omitting the DDoS device, which is another 15-20 thousand dollars. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting solutions can be stumbled upon out there... and, in particular, why the web hosting sky is so azure... and almost cloudless!
