The full truth about the cloud hosting solution
In general, the actual cloud web hosting platform serves separate hosting services like disk space, mail, File Transfer Protocol, databases, DNS, stats, website hosting Control Panel, backup, etc., on autonomous hosts of very powerful web servers. Each different service pack constitutes a cluster. All the web servers in a cluster are devoted to serving solely the particular service and nothing else. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in almost equivalent proportions. If there is a genuine cloud web hosting service, there would be: a disk storage cluster, a mail cluster, an FTP cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a web page hosting Control Panel cluster, a backup cluster, etc. All these separate service clusters will render the so-called cloud site hosting system.
The big cloud web hosting trick. Very modern now.
There is so much misunderstanding going around about cloud web hosting nowadays. As you can see,cloud hosting does not only seem complicated, but in fact it is greatly complicated. Most of the people know nothing about what cloud hosting is. On the basis of this popular ignorance, the "cloud web hosting traders" speculate eagerly, just to get hold of the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! A great shame. This is because in the web hosting industry niche there are no laws at all. The domain name industry has ICANN. The web page hosting industry has no such self-governing institution. This is why the web hosting retailers speculate and tell lies openly (very bluntly, as a matter of fact) to their clients. Mainly the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's find out how much cloud hosting they indeed can deliver.
The facts about the cPanel-based "cloud" web space hosting distributors
If a cPanel-based web page hosting provider has a cloud web space hosting platform at hand, which is very improbable, multiple web servers must be ensured. Which is also not inexpensive. We will get back to that at the end of this article. First off, let's explore what the cloud troubles are. So, it's very unlikely for a cPanel hosting wholesaler to keep the cloud web space hosting platform at hand, since devising one demands years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, loads of money must be invested too. Piles of cash. In addition, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.
The shortage of open source cloud web space hosting environments
There aren't any open source cloud webspace hosting systems. There are no open source web hosting CP devices (working with the cloud website hosting system) as well. Hence, to have a cloud web space hosting system at hand, first of all you have to devise one. In-house. Secondly, you have to set up the hosting CP too.
Single server-based CPs
Today's popular web hosting Control Panels such as cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are set up to work on a single web server solely. All webspace hosting services (disk storage, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, statistics, CP, backup, etc.) are being served concurrently on one single server where these given one-server site hosting platforms and webspace hosting Control Panels are installed.
The absence of open source site hosting CPs
So, you must invent an in-house built site hosting Control Panel that will work faultlessly and to add it within the cloud platform, as if it was an indelible constituent of it. Good examples of custom built cloud hosting solutions with custom devised site hosting CPs are: Sozac.com, NTCHosting, Lonex, Exclusive Hosting, FreeHostia, OpenHost, 50Webs, 100WebSpace, Fateback, MediaTemple and ResellersPanel
Cloud hosting hardware provision rates
The minimum investment required, just for the cloud web space hosting hardware equipment, equals somewhere between sixty thousand dollars and $80,000. That's excluding the DDoS tool, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud web site hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, in particular, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
